Dreaming About Sex

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

According to Carl Jung sex dreams are generally less about sex; and more about a conflict.

We never really know what dreams really mean, and our subconscious mind can produce many different elements while we sleep. Dreaming of sex is one of the most common dreams. There is a focus on being inexplicably anxious after having this dream. There is a distant relationship between sex dreams and also our own romantic life. Our night-time visions can help in our daily life, specifically to improve or understand our relationships better.

While sleeping, your mind may merge the things you’ve seen that day, for example: if you go to a coffee shop during the day, then before bed you see a picture of an old school friend on social media, it would not be unusual to merge the two and dream about that friend swimming in a pool made out of coffee! I am trying to explain that what happens during our waking world, effects our dreams. That being said, if you have been in a relationship then it is common to dream of this person. Elements that come through to us during our sleep.

To dream about sex is usually a sign that different parts of your body are in conflict with each other, and the content you see in your dreams represent how those conflicting parts of yourself come together. Although dreams will vastly differ from person to person, it is suggested that someone is likely to have 100,000 dreams in their lifetime. Sex dreams consist of 8% of these.

Detailed dream meaning:

To dream about sex can sometimes be unsettling, as dreams such as these can involve anything from an ex who you’ve had a bad experience with; someone you have very negative feelings for; or even a sibling or parent. To wake up from a sexual dream involving someone is usually extremely hard to just forget about. But it is very important to remember that this does not mean you actually desire them in a romantic or sexual way. To dream about yourself having intimate relations will usually mean you are subconsciously becoming like your partner in the dream. You might feel as though you are emerging into adulthood; or that you, yourself, are soon to become a parent. If you dream about yourself having sex with someone close to you, perhaps you are in conflict with yourself and feel concerned about what new responsibilities you have to take on? On the other hand, if you dream about a parent or other relatives, such as a sibling, it could mean you are longing to be closer to them; or perhaps mend your broken relationship.

If, on the other hand, if you see yourself having sex with a celebrity; someone you admire; or even someone you may find attractive in real life, this dream represents the feelings you have towards them. Dreaming of a celebrity will usually mean you are longing for fame, fortune, and success. Dreaming of someone you admire or find attractive in real life, will usually suggest parts of your introverted self which cloud be in conflict with each other. To be dissatisfied with yourself in the dream is very common, but these dreams will show you hidden feelings which you may not have actually realized. Are you are unhappy in your real life? This can be both negative and positive. Being unaware means you are not affected by it so much, but it also means you are still carrying around a negative state of mind with you.

To stop carrying this “negative” feeling with you, you need to understand what it is you need to move on from, and how, rather than still keeping it with you but pretending you’re not by trying to push it out of your mind. If you are watching others have sex in your dreams, you might be too involved in their relationship. This can be for many reasons, such as longing for your own; or having problems with the one you are in. If you dislike the people you see; or if you, yourself are having sex with someone you dislike in your dream, then this could mean they are very much in your face with their opinions and judgments.

If you are dreaming about having sex with and people are watching indicates nothing to do with desire, but rather a frustration, envy, or the need to detract from them. Lastly, your dreams generally consist of things you have experienced throughout the day. To dream of having sex with your sister is connected to our inner hopes and fears. Maybe you have been thinking deeply recently. Dreaming of having sex with your brother can be associated with being lost in a work situation. Do you feel you need to study more in life?
