Moronic condom-snorting challenge takes over social media

They are not mean to be snorted through the nose and then pulled it out through the throat- which is exactly what happens when someone tries out the condom challenge, a risky trend that's going viral among teens, according to KABB-TV. Teens are circulating videos on social media in which they insert a condom in one nostril, inhale it, and extract it through the mouth.

The condom snorting fad follows a recent trend of people eating Tide Pods and encouraging or daring others to do the same.

YouTube videos, mostly dating from 2013, capture young people inhaling condoms into their nostrils as part of a so-called "condom snorting challenge".

"The nose is connected to the back of the mouth - it's also connected to the airwaves".

The "Condom Challenge" is not only gross, it's unsafe. A condom, comprised of latex, rubber and covered in spermicide, can damage the inner lining of the nose.
