Teens Snorting Condoms… YES It’s An Actual THING!
Teens snort condoms then pull them through mouths in disturbing new trend.
(According to this) The latest challenge involves snorting a condom up one nostril, inhaling, and finally pulling it from the throat out the mouth.
Browse these videos! I’m sorry I had to see what in the heck this was all about. What’s up with these kids? This is dumb and dangerous. They need less time on their hands for sure.
Like other viral fads, this one has been around for years but is just now catching fire on social media, mostly via YouTube.
Health authorities warn that the new “game” poses a real risk and can kill.
Anything that goes up one’s nose “can damage the sensitive inner lining of your nose, cause an allergic reaction, or result in an infection,” wrote Bruce Y. Lee, associate professor of international health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in a column for Forbes.
“The condom could easily get stuck in your nose or your throat, blocking your breathing or causing you to choke,” he added.
“Even if you manage to successfully pull the condom out through your mouth, inhaling a condom up your nose would be very uncomfortable and potentially quite painful,” Lee wrote. “Would it really be worth all that just to get more likes and views?”
The condom snorting fad follows a recent trend of people eating Tide Pods and encouraging or daring others to do the same.
