Latest stupid viral teen craze: the 'condom snorting challenge'

The condom-snorting trend follows several other risky online challenges including the cinnamon challenge, in which students try to swallow a tablespoon of dry cinnamon with no water, and the Tide pod challenge, in which students try to eat as many Tide pods as they can in a short period of time.

In 2015, a different condom challenge took off on the internet, as people tried to break water-filled condoms over others' heads, the New York Daily News reported.

The condom snorting challenge comes with a number of health risks, including choking.

Of course, there is a chance that you might pull the condom right out of your mouth as you meant to.

Teens are snorting condoms as part of a viral challenge that has made a comeback.

Police say they were likely exposed to the poison on the door of Sergei Skripal's suburban home in Salisbury. Huntsman told the local RBC news outlet earlier Thursday that such a move was "possible".

A check on YouTube shows more than a thousand videos uploaded in the past year related to "condom snorting", with more than 50 posted in the past four weeks.

Mr Stephen Enriquez said in the KABB report: "These days our teens are doing everything for likes, views and subscribers".

Yes, it's gross. Worse, it's unsafe, warns Bruce Y. Lee, an associate professor of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. In addition, it could "cause an allergic reaction, or result in an infection". The practice could be risky to your sinuses and potentially life-threatening if the condom gets stuck in your throat.

Lee also noted there are cases where women accidentally inhaled or swallowed a condom during oral sex that led to lung collapse, appendicitis, and pneumonia. While the shock factor of shoving something up your nose and pulling it out of your mouth might make for a viral video, the risks involved aren't worth any number of likes and views.

When the Tide Pod challenge was popular people would share videos of themselves to the internet of them biting, smoking, or even cooking Tide laundry detergent pods. The challenge is extremely unsafe and even caught the attention of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, which warned about the risks of social media craze.
