What is the Condom Snorting Challenge?

  • The condom snorting challenge is an online trend where people post a video of themselves snorting a condom through their nose and pulling it out of their mouth
  • Most videos of the condom snorting challenge are from 2007-2013. However, with one YouTube search our team was able to find videos that were uploaded in April 2018, of teens doing the challenge (2 teens had even live streamed it that same day)
  • The condom snorting challenge shouldn’t be confused with “the condom challenge”. The condom challenge is another viral trend where teens fill up condoms with water and drop them on people

Why should parents care?

  • This challenge can be very dangerous and can cause choking
  • Health experts warn of infection or allergic reaction
  • Viral challenges like this encourage teens to do dangerous things just for likes, views, attention, and subscribers
  • While this viral trend may have been more popular in 2013, teens are hearing about it and posting videos about it today
  • YouTube has removed videos of teens doing the challenge because they showcase “harmful or dangerous content”
  • Knowing about social media challenges and trends before your teen does can help you keep them safe before an incident occurs

Josh's presentation about social media was unbelievably fantastic. Our students learned so much about what kids should and shouldn't be doing. The fact that it is such a thoughtful process made it all worthwhile.
