The "Snorting Condom Challenge" has teens placing unwrapped condoms up their nostrils and inhaling them until the condom comes out of their mouth.

The challenge has been around for several years, but it is becoming popular again as people, mainly younger adults and teens, search for stupid trends to do during boredom that will go viral on the internet.

Of course, there is a chance that you might pull the condom right out of your mouth as you meant to. According to the Sacramento Bee, the condom-snorting challenge isn't exactly new - in fact, it's been around since at least 2013 when YouTube star Savannah Strong posted a video of herself completing the challenge.

Teenagers have moved on to snorting condoms rather than eating tide pods, according to a Fox News Monday report.

'As graphic as it is, we have to show parents because teens are going online looking for challenges and recreating them.

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".

Swansea City hope to continue remarkable record against Manchester United
They have more hard games to come in the run in against Manchester City at the Etihad and Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium. He does at least give The Swans credit for our fightback in the second half. "We let it go a little bit".

As gross as it is, the challenge is also risky, with the condoms getting stuck in people throats and blocking their airways.

He also said the condoms could cause allergic reactions and result in infections.

Although the videos of teens attempting this challenge are being removed from social media when they are discovered, more continue to crop up nearly daily.

A 2004 report from India tells of a 27-year-old woman who gave oral sex to a man wearing a condom, swallowed it into her lungs, blocked an airway, came down with pneumonia, and suffered a partial lung collapse. That led to a rash of poisonings, with 142 reported by poison-control centers in January alone.

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.
