i had a dream where i went to a beautiful beach and was enjoying the scenic sunset beauty. suddenly, i got shocked by seeing a naked guy go for a swim in the sea. he had an amazing big penis. aroused, i smiled and ogled at him for a little while. then, i got up to go out for a walk along the waterline. many people were enjoying the evening. i found many guys sitting naked or semi-naked. they were all in various activities – all relaxing in their own way, some sitting and lazying, some reading, some sprawled out. notable was that all of them had big penises. some of them had limp penises and some were erect… but all of them were big… i remember thinking, hey in this part of city, all the guys have big penises.
Lauri:¬†I have this suspicion that many of Em & Lo’s readers would like to know in what city your dream took place! Anyhoo, as delightfully phallic as your dream is, it is really all about you.
The beach setting and the nakedness are all about freedom and getting things out in the open. In real life have you recently gotten something off your chest or opened up about something? Penises in dreams tend to be connected to one’s assertiveness and ability to “stand firm” about certain issues. And usually the bigger something is in a dream the bigger a deal it is in real life.
So what I am getting from this dream is that you may have recently “grown a pair,” so to speak, and “stood up” for yourself in some way… in a BIG way. And in doing so, it brought about a certain sense of freedom, which is great! Because when we hold things in or don’t stand up for ourselves, we become imprisoned by fear and worry.
Life’s too short for that nonsense. Live life in a big way while you’re here. And your dream suggests you are doing just that!
Dreamer’s Response: the interpretation is bang on … i am going through a tough phase of life, which is making me take a lot of tough decisions. i am a very emotional person, and generally avoid taking such tough stances… but, i did take the decision to put an end to a toxic relationship and friendships. my boyfriend and friends, were taking me and my friendship for granted. this year, i evaluated the space they were giving me and decided that i was bettter off alone, than being in the company of people who were making me feeling less than what i was and were not appreciating me… so i bid goodbye to long-standing friendships and that was taking a toll on me. i decided to begin anew and invest my emotions more carefully than what i had done in the past and have been hurt pretty badly.
