Have you ever woken up to feelings of confusion and arousal after having a sex dream with an unusual partner? While this may come as surprise, it's actually pretty common. In fact, researchers have found that both men and women experience sexual activity in 8 percent of their dreams, and that both genders orgasm in 4 percent of sex dreams.
Everyone has these dreams, according to psychologist Asiphe Ndlela. But few people talk about them. She said sexual dreams revealed desires and anxieties and could be a means to compensate for what was lacking in real life.
Dreams are like letters from the unconscious mind. If only they were written in the same language we use in waking reality. Fortunately, we do have the ability to study our dreams and interpret the common dream symbols they contain. Although there aren't always hard-and-fast universal definitions, the following dream meanings offer a sound starting point to understand your own personal dream meanings.
Those are always fun — even when they are weird or uncomfortable. This means that the attraction can be either conscious or unconscious, as well as totally appealing our abjectly appalling! As with any dream, your sex dreams have to be taken into consideration with your current life situation and conscious attitude.
Elena, a single year-old, recently woke up flushed and sweaty from a sex dream during which she had an intense orgasm. She was pleasantly surprised at first, but then details started flooding back. That's the tricky part about getting down and dirty in your dreams: While you may love the steamy sex scenes and, in some cases, the sheet-twisting sensations those visions can provide, you may also wake up feeling confused, guilty, or totally creeped out.
Ever wake up in a sweat after having an, uhm, inappropriate dream about someone in your life you really shouldn't be thinking about in that way? While we can't exactly say that it happens to all of us, a study done by the University of Montreal did find that of the 3, participants surveyed, about 20 percent of women and 14 percent of men have had sexual dreams about a person who was "off limits" to them in the waking world. If it's happened to you before, you know how awkward it can be to have to face the star of your dream in real life — and that uncomfortable moment is only magnified if that person happens to be your boss or your brother in law.
Interestingly, the scientific study of dreams is known as Oneirology. The reason why some dreamers are able to recall their dreams is because they have been woken up whilst in the REM phase of sleep. It seems that our dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses and, when we have a full eight-hour sleep, the majority of our dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM.
If you're fortunate enough to remember your dreams, then you already know dreams can run the gamut and, sometimes, be weird as hell. But dreams can also be sexy. According to a study of 3, people published in American Academy of Sleep Medicinerespondents reported that roughly eight percent of their dreams are about sex. The study found that most common sex-related dreams are about intercourse, while sexual propositions, masturbation, and fantasies were in there too.
