Other peopleâ€™s dreams are never interestingâ€¦except when theyâ€™re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means (after the jump). This week, a woman asks Lauri:
I’m driving by the park in the town where I live. It’s very hot and humid and it starts to rain (a lot). I notice the guy I like (and have asked out with a response of yes, but due to work we couldn’t go out) running shirtless on the sidewalk, dripping in sweat and rain. As I pull over to let him in out of the rain, I notice how ripped he is. On the way to his house we stop on a side road and he looks at me, says “hi,” and we lean into each other and start making out in my truck in the rain.
Lauri: My my my, what a sultry dream! While this dream serves the purpose of wish fulfillment, it also goes a bit deeper. Weather in dreams often reflects your emotions. The heat and humidity are connected to the “hots” you have for him! You asked him out, he said yes, the heat is now on! But then thereâ€™s the rain. Is there something you are depressed about? Anything you have shed many tears over? A recent breakup perhaps? He was the one in the rainâ€¦maybe he is the one who has been bummed out. He is on the sidewalk because he has been pushed “to the side” because of work. None the less, you let him in and the make-out fest begins. Kissing in dreams is actually about communication because — like kissing — it takes two mouths to communicate. The message of your dream is: in order to bring him into your life, just as you brought him into your car, you need to engage in conversation. Make it happen sista!
