And 1 in 4 millennial men have sent one                                          

A new trend has spread across the New York subway system – men using iPhone AirDrop to send unsuspecting passengers in the same train car a picture of their crotch. So called "dick pics" in general have become an increasingly popular fad, especially for millennials, as illustrated by new data from YouGov Omnibus.

In fact, 1 in 4 millennial men (27%) have sent a "dick pic" to a woman. Of millennial men who have sent a lewd photo, 24% have done so without being asked. However, not all "dick pics" are unsolicited – 34% of millennial men have been asked by a woman to send one.

Given the prevalence of these provocative snapshots, it tracks that just over half of millennial women (53%) have received one. Specifically, a staggeringly high number of these respondents have been messaged an uninvited graphic image – roughly 3 in 4 millennial women (78%). Actually, more young women responded that they’d received an unwanted "dick pic" than had received one because they asked for it (69%).

While sending "dick pics" is generally considered a craze among today’s youth, it isn’t just millennials who are getting them. In fact, over a third of 35 to 54 year olds have been sent one, as well as 8% of those over the age of 55.

When presented with a list of possible adjectives to describe "dick pics," the most common labels millennial women chose were “gross” (49%), “stupid” (48%), and “sad” (24%). When millennial men were asked what terms they thought women would use to label "dick pics," they also selected “gross” as number one (32%). But the similarities stop there. The second most common adjective millennial men selected out of the options given was “sexy” (30%). Clearly, there is a bit of miscommunication between the sexes concerning the merits of nudes.
