5 Common Sexual Dreams -- and What They Really Mean

The Interruption

You're in the midst of a passionate embrace when your parents, your boss, or some other intruder barges in. This person speaks to you as if you are not in the middle of something so private, and although you're upset and embarrassed, you conduct a brief, logical conversation with them. This dream suggests that there are outside forces intruding on your relationship, specifically in the areas of sexuality and private time. Some people find it easy to admit that the appearance of the boss in their bedroom shows just how often their career interferes with their love life, invading even those moments when they'd really like to forget about the office. For others, the implications are more subtle. It may not be real-life parents who intrude with phone calls and suggestions, but rather the opinions and expectations we absorbed from them that interrupt.

These dreams show how completely an outside element can spoil a moment of passion. In the case of things we absorbed from parents, it may not be our libido that is inhibited, but rather our ability to deeply connect and trust that is impaired. The source of the intrusion is usually a clue as to what kind of energy is disrupting your intimacy. It is vital not to blame your partner or yourself, but to look objectively at how you can bolster psychic boundaries so that you can enjoy a romantic sanctuary with the one you love.
