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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:
Last couple of weeks I have been having dreams about strangers having sex, or about to have sex. I am in no way involved in the sexual act, but somehow happen to be at the place. In one instance it was at the place where I live, the other was somewhere else, but I happen to be there.
Lauri: Interesting. These dreams seem to reflect a waking life sense of being left out. Letâ€™s start with your social circleâ€¦ are you single while everyone around you is attached? Or do the people around you seem to have stronger connections to one another than you do? How in your waking life are you feeling like a third wheel or the odd man out? We should also talk about how you felt when you watched these people have sex in your dream. Did you enjoy it and want in on it? Or did it seem awkward and embarrassing for you? Take the way you felt in the dream and try to connect it to how you feel about something in your waking life. Who or what is causing you to feel ignored? Or have you recently been put in an awkward situation? Whatever the case, it seems that these dreams are calling upon you to make yourself and your thoughts knownâ€¦ either that, or itâ€™s time to start that porn stash youâ€™ve been thinking about!
