5 Common Sexual Dreams -- and What They Really Mean

Have you ever had a sexy dream that didn't seem to make sense? Read this excerpt from The Complete Dream Book: Discover What Your Dreams Tell about You and Your Life to discover the hidden meaning behind the most common sexual dreams here:

Nowhere to Make Love

In this dream, you take off with your partner and decide to have a lover's tryst. You go to the selected location but there are too many people around.

Annoyed but adaptable, you head off for a more secluded location but it is unacceptable for other reasons. In fact, everywhere you go, there are people, circumstances, or problems that make it impossible to make love. You awaken feeling like you spent the whole night searching for a place to make love! This isn't really a dream about sex so much as it is about trying to salvage intimacy itself. It's typical to have this dream after a break up or when- ever you and your partner are feeling estranged. The frustrating circumstances that serve to keep you from making love in the dream represent the different forces and obstacles in the relationship that prevent you from feeling close and intimate. Become conscious of the fact that there are two factions in this relationship -- the parts of you and your partner that want to be together, and the aspects of you both that are keeping you apart. This means you're likely to have some confusing moments as you sort through your options and find your thoughts and feelings in conflict at times. If you've already left the relationship, just relax and let your psyche do its healing work. If you are in the relationship and want to make it work, you may want to get some support to help open up communication so that there is some psychological place where you two can meet and rekindle the spark.
