Teenagers in Indonesia were arrested by authorities after they admitted drinking the disgusting tampon juice to get high. One 14-year-old boy admitted that his friends drunk the “menstrual moonshine” in the “morning, afternoon, and evening.”


Being a teenager and doing bizarre things go hand in hand

This time, the teenagers have done something so bizarre that it makes my brain hurt. It looks like teens these days can do anything and everything to get ‘that high they want,’ figuratively or literally.

How innocent of us to think that things will not get worse from 'Boling Water Challenge' and the 'Tide Pod Challenge.'

This time, the teenagers have come up with a new craze called the Tampon Challenge, and it involves boiling and drinking feminine hygiene products.

Yes, you heard it right, and yes it is literally gross.


In Indonesia, authorities arrested some teenagers after they were found using tampon juice to get high

Let us tell you the recipe.

In Indonesia, some teenagers were arrested for collecting menstrual pads and tampons and boiling them in water. Then, they allow the mixture to cool and drink the resulting liquid.



Now the question is how they end up getting high?

We see you are confused about how tampon juice can get someone high. 

The thing is that the chlorine used to sanitize these feminine hygiene products is what’s giving them hallucinations while making them feel like they’re “flying.”

The cops have arrested a few teenagers who have admitted to drinking this disgusting juice.

 One 14-year-old admitted that his friends drunk the “menstrual moonshine” in the “morning, afternoon, and evening.”


An investigation is undergoing, the authorities are trying to find which pads caused the intoxication effect

The investigation is being done, authorities are trying to find which pads caused the intoxication effect but stated that consuming the chemicals contained in the tampon is dangerous.

Senior Commander Suprinarto, head of the BNN in Central Java, Indonesia, said:

“The materials they’re using are legal, but they’re not being used in a way that’s intended, so it ends up being used as a drug.”

“We need to take steps to educate people that there are materials that aren’t classified as drugs or psychotropics in the eyes of the law, but can still be misused.”


Authorities say this tampon juice could have fatal side effects

Sitty Hikmawatty, a commissioner for drugs and health with the Indonesian Committee on Child Protection (KPAI), added:

“A lot of these kids are smart, and with the internet, they can make new variants and concoctions.”

“This is where the risk factor goes up because they’re only concerned with one substance in a mixture, ignoring the other substances, leaving open the possibility of fatal side effects.”



People are hating this new challenge

People on social media are not happy with what these teenagers are doing. 

One Twitter user said, “this needs to stop… PERIOD.”

Though almost everyone hated the concept of tampon highs, some people didn't find it so bad.

One Twitter user said; “sometimes, you just have to go with the flow.”
