Teens snort condoms then pull them through mouths in disturbing new trend

03_30_condoms

Teens are circulating videos on social media in which they insert a condom in one nostril, inhale it, and extract it through the mouth. What could go wrong?

Some are positive, such as those that aim to raise awareness about an important cause; some are benign, like viral makeup trends; and some are risky, like the new "condom snorting challenge".

"Because these days our teens are doing everything for likes, views and subscribers, " Enriquez added.

The wrappers are removed before teens try the new challenge. They discovered that an oral-sex mishap caused her to inhale a condom into her lung, which led to its partial collapse.

In another case, outlined in the Journal of Medical Case Reports, a 26-year-old woman inadvertently swallowed a condom and a piece of it traveled to her appendix. According to Know Your Meme, the first use of the term "condom challenge" was in 2012, when YouTuber Isaac Mathers posted a video of himself snorting a condom through his nose, then pulling it out of his mouth. As Kens5 puts it, "There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity, but the line isn't so fine when people snort condoms". A condom, comprised of latex, rubber and covered in spermicide, can damage the inner lining of the nose.

Once you've watched someone inhale a condom through their nostril and pull it out of their mouth, it's a hard thing to unsee.

"Would it really be worth all that just to get more like and views?"

This fad might be taking off on social media, however, it also reaps many health risks.

Google Trends shows a sharp spike in the search term "condom snorting" in late March, with a hundred searches in the past week. That stunt, dubbed "The Tide Pod Challenge", resulted in poison centers reporting 142 incidents just in January, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC).
