New Condom Challenge to Promote Safe Sex Message Goes Viral On Social Media

Everything gets easily promoted in the social media. Safe sex message is also not an exception. Just like the Ice Bucket Challenge that went viral for a period, a new Condom Challenge is inspiring millions to be part of it.

The #condomchallenge is to fill a condom fully with water and drop it on other person's head. The condom expands and it covers the whole face before popping out. Many people have said that this challenge is not safe and does not promote safe sex.

The condom challenge was first posted on Twitter by two people who tried it. The video went viral with 9,000 retweets as many found it hilarious. But the challenge is not safe as the condom filled with water suffocated many people.

According to the Condom Challenge Twitter page, it's to promote safe sex.

"On their page, they say it's to raise awareness, and if a condom can fit over the head sitting on top of your shoulders, it can certainly fit on the one below your waist," said Alicia Allen, a therapist with a focus in sex therapy.

Many Health experts reported that the challenge was just stupid and not safe. The safe sex message is not getting promoted through this condom challenge.
