Sexual Dreams – Explained

Sexual Dreams – What They Really Mean..

Sexual Dreams are obviously a good gauge of your overall libido level. Freud said sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.  He also obsessed in his semi-repressive Victorian times that sex dreams were always about something more.

Scientists believe that dreams have no meaning and are just the product of randomly firing neurons.  Psychologists have spent more than a century looking into the meaning of common dreams.They’ve come up with some pretty solid and widely accepted interpretations for all sorts of REM meanderings — including a wide variety of sex dreams.

Paying attention to your sexual dreams over time can be a powerful way to get what you want out of your life.  “Writing your dreams down each morning and looking at your journals for patterns over time can help you see what your subconscious is trying to tell you.

Random or series of dreams about sex with strangers:

Nope, this doesn’t mean you have any desire to cheat on your significant other with the man who lives next door or the person who makes your morning coffee….. Dreams about strangers or acquaintances are usually a good indicator of the state of your libido: Your brain is trying to let you know that those physical needs are not getting met. Find a good and safe way to help your brain out.

Getting it on with your boss:

Yes, this dream means you want to get closer with your boss—but not in that way. Because sex is so intimate, it may mean you’re feeling especially distant from your boss’s ideas or management style, and may need to figure out a way to get closer.

Sex In a public place:

Sometimes the most memorable part of a sex dream isn’t so much about the other person (or people) in it, but the location. “In dreams, we use geographical locations to symbolize geographic areas of your life: like your home life, your work life, your love life, you social circle,” Loewenberg said. “The public location would symbolize some part of your life that everyone knows about.”

So if you’re having sex in your office in front of a bunch of people…  It could mean your work life is dominating a lot of your conversations lately, or that you’re known best for your accolades at work, or that work is occupying all of your brain space.

Sex with a celeb:

Hey, you and George Clooney can be single in your subconscious. But as good as the dream-sex may have been, it’s not really about him (sorry, George!). Instead, dreams about having sex with a celebrity may indicate that you seek the spotlight in your own life. Volunteer to spearhead a project at work, speak up with friends and family.

Having  Sex With someone of the same sex:

If you’re a woman who isn’t normally attracted to other women… Same-sex sex dreams are still very common. According to Loewenberg. “If it seems weird and random to have that dream, remember it’s not really about [having that curiosity], but more about what the person you’re having sex with represents,” she said.

Think about the qualities the women who appears in your dream represents — is she particularly nurturing, strong, or kind? And think of things you’ve done lately that make you really proud of your gender. Did you get praise for completing a big project in your male-dominated office? Are you newly volunteering for a woman’s equality cause? Or maybe you’re secretly looking for an opportunity like that.
