The meaning of sex dreams
Decoding the meaning behind sex dreams is not a one-size-fits-all process. While you may have the urge to interpret your sex dream literally, Brito says to capture the essence of a dream, it’s best to focus on the symbolic representation.
“When sex shows up in your dreams, break it down into a story that has a beginning, a middle, and an end, and focus on experiencing the feelings in your dream and being curious about where the energy of the dream leads you, specifically of how the dream ends,” explains Brito. “This will reveal to you the emotional need that your sex dream is trying to have you fulfill in waking life,” she adds.
That’s why it’s OK to not read too much into last night’s dream that featured you doing things you never thought you would do with your boss. Even sex dreams that might be considered “taboo” are nothing to worry about. You just have to dig a little deeper to see what your subconscious is saying about your waking life.
1.Sex dreams about cheating on your S.O.
Don’t freak out! It doesn’t mean your brain is about to take you on a cheating a rampage without having any choice in the matter. Dreaming about getting down and dirty with another person, though, might mean you’re not feeling fulfilled in your relationship, whether it’s inside or outside of the bedroom. Whoever you’re dreaming about having sex with matters, too. If it’s someone you’ve been spending time with recently, you may want to reconsider how intimate your friendship is with this person.
2.Sex dreams about weird fetishes or fantasies.
Orgies, bondage, partner swapping, gay sex when you’re straight (or vice versa) — these are all scenarios that might make you feel weird when you wake up, but they’re perfectly normal sex dreams. Generally, there aren’t big meanings behind these. You just get a free pass to enjoy some fantasies in a judgment-free setting.
3.Sex dreams about your boss.
Depending on who you work for, this will either be enjoyable or frightening. Lauri Quinn Loewenberg, dream expert and author of Dream On It, Unlock Your Dreams Change Your Life, told Cosmopolitan this imaginary roll in the hay means you need to take charge of something going on in your life, sexual or not.
4.Experiencing an actual orgasm.
If it feels like you’re having an orgasm, it could actually be because you’re getting close to experiencing one physically, according to studies. It’s not just men who get extra excited while catching z’s. Experts say women, too, go through bodily changes—i.e. increase in vaginal lubrication, enlarged clitoris—during the REM stage of sleep that can lead to arousal down there. And if your sex dream happens to coincide with the time that you’re experiencing REM, you’re really in for a treat.
5.Having sex with someone of the same sex
‘In Jungian psychology we all have both feminine and masculine aspects within us, and we feel best when these are balanced. A man’s feminine side is called his “anima”, and a womans masculine side is her “animus”. Connecting with the feminine or masculine aspect of yourself in a dream can be very powerful, balancing, and healing. A sexual encounter with a person of the same sex may be telling you that it’s time to embrace that side of yourself more. It may also be telling you that it’s time to heal a situation with your same-sex parent, nurturing the relationship. A romantic same-sex encounter could also help you see yourself in a new light, integrating the feminine or masculine side of yourself more fully, and healing your soul.’
6.Having sex with a co-worker
‘Sex dreams are great for bringing attention to our inner qualities and personalities. They can help us see who we really are, and even help us reach our full potential. What kind of co-worker is it that you are making love to? What stands out about him/her? What qualities do they represent that may also be present within you? Is it perhaps time to collaborate on a project, or have a reconciliation on some level? In terms of your own personal growth, these types of dreams could be golden guidance dreams in terms of who you would like to be, and help you get there by becoming more aware of who you really have the potential to be.’
