In their survey of 204 college students conducted last spring, they found that 56 percent of the students had received sexually suggestive images, and 78 percent had received sexually suggestive messages.

Two-thirds of the group had sent sexually suggestive messages.

While most of the messages were sent to a relationship partner, 10 percent were sent without consent of the person who originally sent the message.
