We all have ’em —sexiest, raciest, steamiest dream about may be our exes or our boss/ colleague or for matter your favoriate star (those are the best!…Ryan Gosling PHEW!)
There you are — under the covers, disrobed, fooling around with some sexy mystery hunk. Suddenly, you catch a glimpse of his face and … it’s your old third-grade math teacher?
That’s when you wake up.
Just because you’re sleeping doesn’t mean your libido is resting too. The interpretation of the dream is the royal road to the knowledge of your subconscious. Dreams help your subconscious mind empty everything that’s affecting your life; they could symbolize problems, desires and hopes of different spheres of your life.
Sex with a celebrity
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, or take an improv class (hey, why not?).
Dreaming about an ex.
If this happens every so often, it may simply be your brain sifting through its mental hard drive. Maybe his birthday is coming up, or maybe you saw a Tweet from him in your feed, but it doesn’t mean that he’s the one who got away or that you subconsciously want to get back together. However, if you’re dreaming about him a lot, or are pretty sure those dreams sparked from your hour-long deep dive Google searches of his name, it could be a sign that there are issues in your current relationship that need addressing.
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 (and not in the type of way that’ll make you blush when you run into each other at the copier!)
Trying to find a private space with a partner.
Dreams of having problems finding a place to have sex can often represent a lack of connection between you and your partner in your day-to-day life. Take a look at your calendar: Are you being busy instead of getting busy most days? It may be time to schedule a date night, says Loewenberg.
Having sex with an acquaintance.
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—it just means that you may admire that person and wish you possessed some of their qualities, or whatever qualities they seem to express in your dream, says Loewenberg. “Sex is the ultimate act of union between two individuals, so when you’re having sex with someone in your dreams, it may mean that you want what they have.”
An unexplained dream is like an unread letter. Dreams are answers to questions we haven’t figured out how to ask. Nobody can understand your dream better than you. Just think a bit and find out what was your dream trying to convey you.
Keep Dreaming (wink*)
