Last night I had a dream I was at work, talking to this girl I’m not very close with. In fact, our conversations are generally short and kind of awkward. Anyways in the dream we started discussing masturbation and such and I asked her if we had vibrators in the store, to which she replied ‘yes’ and walked me to the aisle where we have vibrators?! And so I bought one and put it in my car, and as I was walking to my car I was desperately trying to hide it. But I also never used it in the dream. What does this mean?
Lauri: Masturbation dreams are usually about the need to give our selves more attention and appreciation in waking life. Are you uncomfortable taking compliments or showing off your skills? Do you do too much for others and not enough for yourself? Do you feel awkward when you are given praise? That may be what the co-worker represents.
Purchasing the vibrator suggests part of you is ready to start giving yourself some more me time, not necessarily in the bedroom or the shower but rather in being kinder and more forgiving of yourself perhaps, or in taking better care of yourself or even being more willing to show off your skills, looks or assets.
However, the way you try to hide It on the way to the car makes me think that either a part of you still is not comfortable with the idea of giving yourself more attention, credit, etc. OR there is something else in your waking life that you are trying to keep to yourself, something that maybe you fear will make you appear selfish or self-absorbed. I think the message of the dream is that it’s okay to do what pleases you and to be proud of yourself… it feels good!
