The condom challenge is just the latest in a string of risky viral challenges that can quickly gain steam on the internet, from swallowing laundry pods, to sticking a ton of cinnamon in your mouth (and potentially choking on that).
It's risky because the condom could easily get stuck in the nose and throat, blocking breathing and causing the challenger to choke.
Of course, there is a chance that you might pull the condom right out of your mouth as you meant to.

Also known as the "snorting condom challenge" or "condom-snorting challenge", the fad actually dates back several years but has recently gone viral again, educators say. Another woman accidentally swallowed the condom and it blocked her appendix, leading to appendicitis. "Would it really be worth all that just to get more likes and views?". The American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) treated 215 teenagers related to intentionally ingesting single packet laundry detergent since January 2018, according to the AAPCC's website. They discovered that an oral-sex mishap caused her to inhale a condom into her lung, which led to its partial collapse.
