And when did it get popular?!

I have never heard of this till now..

A teen has gotten the herpes complex virus after using a used condom for the condom challenge.

He got off lightly....kids have died doing this.

Wtf do people think?

It is very funny to watch on youtube.

But ew why the hell would anyone use a used condom.

I hadn't heard about anyone dying from it until you said so though.

Why do people quote snopes like its some kind of authority?

Although I do agree that the condom stories seem false.

I've seen worse like NekNomination...

My bad I didn't check the veracity of it.

All the same this still seems to be a stupid challenge. Like the neknominations mentioned above

The article you link to is itself pretty weak. Have you read it?

FairyFluffbum Tue 29-Dec-15 18:05:56

Yes I read it and I already held my hands up and apologises. No need to continue sniping.

I thought it was real as most people are idiots when had a few drinks

agapimou I don't often quote snopes but this is fairly clearcut - there's no reports of herpes/death due to the condom challenge on any sensible websites and had someone died because of it the Daily Mail would have run a 4 page spread on the failings of today's youth.
