While it sounds like an April Fool’s joke, educators are warning about a “condom challenge” being spread online by YouTube videos and social media. We will NOT post these videos.
Also known as the “snorting condom challenge” or “condom-snorting challenge,” the fad actually dates back several years but has recently gone viral again, educators say.
The challenge involves snorting an unwrapped condom up one nostril, then pulling the condom from the throat out the mouth, reported Newsweek. Participants typically then post a video of the completed challenge to YouTube.
It’s dangerous because the condom could easily get stuck in the nose and throat, blocking breathing and causing the challenger to choke.
Remember when condoms were used for the other thing?
