Dream Interpretation: OMG I Slept with My Mom!

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. This week, a male reader asks Lauri:

I have sex with my mom in my dreams WTH is that all about?

Lauri: Yes, major “Eew!” factor with this one.  But fear not!  Remember, dreams are symbolic and not to be taken literally.  Sex, to the dreaming mind, is not always about a physical union you want, but is more often about a psychological union you need.  Do you need to connect with your mom in some way?  Have you drifted apart, or do you no longer get along?  Your dream may be urging you to re-unite. Or do you guys have an awesome relationship?  If so, you may get this dream whenever you two really connect and get each other.

It is also possible that your mom is not playing herself at all but rather is standing in for your own “inner Mom,” meaning the part of you that is nurturing and that cares for and “mothers” yourself and others.  Your recurring “Oedipus” dreams may merely be a reflection of the fact that you are a big, caring softy.

Whatever the case, these dreams in NO WAY indicate that you are an incestuous freak.

If u dream you slept with your mother is mean something wrong just happen to you which you will regret for the rest of your life and you don’t wanna repeat the mistake again you wanna come clear…or is mean there is something you want to do which you might regret for the rest of your life so you should think first before you do,or you will regret doing for the rest of your life,sometime these kinder dream might be evil dream with no meaning..but if it happen to you just think the circumstance your in take moment and think deeper before your make any decision ,because is something bad that you will never forget is about to happen.and if already happen you need to find the best solution so you wont regret for the rest of your life..thank you

I’ve had this same dream ..it’s my mom but in her 30’s. It feels so real and the emotion of love and desire run very deep between us. I’ve come to understand; as it was said earlier, that they’re symbols .. she symbolizes anoher person (whom I’ve had a relationship with) who wears the persona of my mom … the prsonality traits etc .. I do have romantic feelings for this person and she for me in a on-off .. hot-cold type relationship. There’s another prson whom she embodies in the same manner, another whom I never got totally over.

The dream reflects the continuing dynamic of the later person and myself. It’s a spiritual window that gives me insight on coming events(this has actually proven true numerous times in the past!) that will take place between she & I.
