Another dick pic case walked into my office last week. Apparently it’s the new normal.
It makes so much sense when you look at it from a generational perspective. You’ve got the millenials (those born between the 80s and late 90s). During their teenaged and college years, the millenials texted, sexted, online dated, and were much more sexually liberated than their parents. They just had much more access to sex and its participants. Their smartphones, coupled with internet hookup sites (and reruns of the Jersey Shore) accelerated the entire hookup process.
And in lieu of foreplay or “wining and dining” (expect cross eyes from any millennial if you mention either of these concepts)–a sexy Snapchat photo coupled with a 140-character flirty message was all it took to seal the deal or let them know you cared after the hookup.
Now the millenials are all grown up and are in the working world. And from what I’m seeing in my Connecticut sexual harassment cases, they are driving the Gen Xers—especially the divorce (and married) guys out of their minds!
And that’s where the dick pic problem comes in…
