Sex with the Boss: Am I Really Attracted or Just Watching Too Much Mad Men?

Just because you dream about shagging your supervisor in the corner office doesn't mean you actually want to do it, says dream expert Lauri Quinn Loewenberg, author of Cracking the Dream Code. "The boss dream is about your needing to be more assertive and authoritative in your own life," she says.

Sex with a coworker is another common dream, Loewenberg says. "And a lot of these dreams have us partnering up with someone we wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole," she adds. So don't freak out if your fantasy involves the septuagenarian in accounting. There's probably something about him that you admire or even envy. "It's not that you want the coworker. It's that there's something about the coworker you want for yourself," Loewenberg says.
