Hundreds have filmed themselves attempting the aptly-named "condom snorting challenge", with stomach-churning videos documenting the entire process.

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". "No one should be putting anything like that in their mouths, you know?"

Although it's unclear why news of the condom-snorting challenge has resurfaced, it appears to be related to the recent warnings about these types of games.

In answer to the several queries we've received: yes, the videos are real.

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. Most dated from 2013, with a few going all the way back to 2007.

March 2018 saw an uptick in media coverage, but it wasn't because people were snorting condoms again.

The Condom Challenge is the latest risky teen trend that is hopefully not sweeping the nation.

The "condom challenge" sees youngsters snorting an unwrapped condom up one nostril, then pulling it from the throat and out the mouth.

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.

Health authorities warn that the new "game" poses a real risk and can kill. Bruce Y. Lee, a contributor to Forbes and Associate Professor of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, explains that the only thing that should go up your nose is air - and the occasional medicine. They discovered that an oral-sex mishap caused her to inhale a condom into her lung, which led to its partial collapse.

This challenge would "demonstrate to everyone that you have absolutely no proper judgment", Lee wrote.
