SKYN® Millennial Survey Reveals Nearly 50% Sext At Least Once A Week

By on February 7, 2017

ISELIN, N.J., It is no surprise that technology has shaped and evolved millennials’ sex lives. A new survey from Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions and the makers of LifeStyles® and SKYN® Condoms (“SKYN”) reveals that nearly 50% of millennials are regularly sexting and sharing naked photos.

Designed to analyze the habits, desires and preferences of sexually active millennials, the findings of the 2017 SKYN Condoms Millennial Sex Survey highlights the alarming discovery that many millennials are overlooking mutual consent when it comes to sex and tech, with nearly 1/3 of respondents admitting they have shared a sexual photo without the subject’s permission.

“Most millennials grew up with cell phones as a part of their daily routine, making it understandable that technology has become an integral part of how they date and communicate with partners,” noted Emily Morse, Sexologist and Host of the “Sex with Emily” podcast. “Sexting can be seen as the modern day love letter, but when nude photos enter the equation, it can veer from harmless flirting to viral sharing. All millennials should be aware that any pictures they send out could end up in the wrong hands, and this data drives that point home.”
Some significant results from the survey that showcase how millennials are incorporating technology into their sex lives, include:

• Sexting Frequency: Compared to SKYN’s 2015 Sex Survey, more millennials have sexted, sent or received a naked picture, with 48% of millennials noting they sext at least once a week.
• Birthday Suits: Millennials are boldly displaying their birthday suits, with 42% of males noting they send naked pictures at least once per week, and 50% of males noting they receive naked pictures at least once per week.
• Sext Consent: Millennials are sharing sexual photos without the subject’s permission, with 30% of respondents saying they have shared a photo without the sender’s knowledge.
• SnapChat Savvy: Millennial males are more likely to share intimate pictures via SnapChat, with 53% of males sending pictures versus their female counterparts at 27%.
In addition to questions related to sex and tech, the 2017 SKYN Condoms Millennial Sex Survey asked over 3,000 sexually active millennials across the U.S. detailed information about their sex lives, including favorite positions, occasions resulting in the most sex, orgasm frequency, bedroom confidence, and much more.
