We would all want to see our dreams come true some day, wouldn’t we?
Well, except for some, and we don’t just include the nightmares here. If you have woken up sweating after having dreamt of having sex with someone that you definitely shouldn’t or can’t have sex with, and driven yourself crazy thinking what kind of a sick pervert you were turning into, then you know what we are talking about. We picked some weird sex dreams some of us may have had at some time or the other and gaze into the flames to find out what they could mean, besides the obvious.
Dreaming about: Sex with an animal
Interpretation: No, you do not wish to experience bestiality. Now that we have cleared that, if you have had a similar dream, it could mean that the animal in your dream represents the qualities you wish to incorporate in your life or are already beginning to do so.
Dreaming about: Gay sex (when you’re straight)
Interpretation: While it could cause you to have doubts about your own sexual orientation, most of the times, seeing yourself having sex with someone from the same gender could be a visual commentary on loving parts of yourself that you have till date shunned or rejected. Aside from it being related to working around your self-esteem issues, experts say that it could also be that you seek qualities that the gender possesses i.e. being more nurturing or creative if you see a girl-on-girl dream.
Dreaming about: Sex with your friend’s S.O.
Interpretation: Awkward, and how! If you are, in fact, sexually attracted to your friend’s partner, then keep the dream and the thoughts well inside your head. If not, apply the magic rule: figure out what quality of his endear him to you and how can you seek them out in your own life.
Dreaming about: Sex with a corpse
Interpretation: As morbid as this seems, it isn’t that uncommon to dream about having sex with a dead body. Mahesh Natarajan, counsellor at Inner Sight Counselling, Bangalore, says that it is necessary to explore what the dreamer is clinging on to or is in denial of in such times. Unresolved conflicts, either with the person you dreamt of or someone else, is the common interpretation. The meaning of the dream could also differ depending on who the dead person is.
Dreaming about: Weird genitalia
Interpretation: Seeing four instead of two? Or two instead of one? Dreaming about weird genitalia could be a way for you to question your sexual life—do feelings of guilt and shame dominate your sexual desires, what aspects of your sexual life do you wish to see changing? Ponder upon it, but as the headmaster of Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore once said in
Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone: “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
Dreaming about: Sex with a co-worker
Interpretation: This is one of the most common sex dreams many of us get. Sometimes, it may mean the obvious thing—that you’re attracted to said co-worker. Other times, it may mean that you recently connected with that person, or there’s something about him/her that you want to incorporate in yourself. Is there something that you admire about the co-worker? That might be your subconscious telling you that you need to learn that trait from them.
Dreaming about: Watching two other people having sex
Interpretation: This dream signifies that you’re currently on the sidelines of something important happening in your life and you feel left out. Understand what it is that’s making you feel this way. It may also indicate that you’re watching the world go by, people doing their thing, pursuing their passions, but you are stuck in the same place. Time to change things up a bit!
