Dream Interpretation: I Accidentally Cut Off My Penis

Advice, Dream Interpretation

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 reader asks Lauri:

I dreamed that I accidentally cut off my penis. It eventually was easily attached back in place, but after great quandary.

Lauri: Worry not, my friend. Dream-induced castration is more common than you might think! You see, dreaming about specific body parts is rarely about that particular organ or appendage, but rather about an emotional or mental ability that particular part represents.

No matter your gender in waking life, a penis is your ability to “man up,” be assertive and stand up (ahem) for yourself; it represents all the qualities typically associated with male energy. Alternatively, a vagina is your ability to be sensitive, a good listener, a nurturer, or your ability to “give birth” to new creative ideas and projects, it represents all the qualities typically associated with female energy.

That being said, accidentally severing your little man down there suggests you may have inadvertently exhibited some sort of passive or gentle behavior in waking life. Think back to what was going on in your life at the time of this dream. Did you not stand up for yourself when you really should have? Did you turn the other cheek when someone challenged you? Or did you cry during a chick flick? You must have done something that made you worry your man card might be revoked!

Your dreaming mind is assuring you that all is well, because you were able to reattach the joy stick. Whew! That’s a good indication you have redeemed yourself to the boys’ club. But do keep in mind that, as much as it may freak you out, detachable genital dreams can actually be a good sign! They suggest that you have the ability to pick and choose which gender role would suit you at any given time. We all need to be able to be sensitive and nurturing without being overly emotional, and firm and determined without being too aggressive.

    Well I just had a very disturbing dream about deciding to cut of my willy in the bath and feel it has nothing to do with preconceptions of how men and women behave.

    In my dream, I don’t know why, I decided to cut it off with a knife thinking I’d just reattach it, but then it got cut into like three bits somehow and there were all these fibers and blobby bits of flesh you can’t just stick back on. And it was almost in the dark, so I had to get up and switch the light on, the getting up out of the bath and holding two knives and three bits of penis making matters worse.

    It was an absolute nightmare, but I don’t feel it had anything to do with societal pressures about “manning up”. If anything more general than the simple terrifying possibility of absent mindedly cutting off my dick, maybe it had something to do with making regrettable irreversible changes. I don’t know, maybe you do?

    ps This all took place in a rather quaint Bavarian apartment overlooking a town with gothic architecture
