Dream Interpretation: Can a Dream Reveal the Father of My Baby?

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I had sex with more than one guy and don’t know who is the father of my baby. All day and all night I think of one guy, I dream about us getting back together, us fighting, him loving his baby. I dream about the time we had sex — every dream I have is about him, and when I’m not dreaming, I think about him. What does this mean?

Lauri:¬†You’re dreaming about this one guy so much because you think about him so much. You see, we tend to dream about what is on our mind the most. Clearly, of all the guys you’ve been with, he’s the one you have feelings for.

Do these dreams mean he IS the father? Maury Povich could answer that more accurately than these dreams. But what they are telling you is this: He is the one you sure hope is the father. In addition, they are also trying to help you come to terms with your situation.

Your dreams of fighting with him are you trying to deal with your own inner conflict about your situation and how you are alone right now. When you dream you are back together, on one level it is because that is your desire, but on another, it is you trying to come to peace with your circumstance.

What I can tell you with 100% certainty is that these dreams are going to continue to nag you until you find out who the father is. The dreaming mind does not like complacency or unresolved issues, so it will nag us to death until we take care of what is left hanging. Find out who the father is then take it from there. Good luck, and sweet dreams!

Dreamer’s response:¬†Yeah, somehow at the back of my head I knew that it has to be about feelings. I love how you interpreted it though. You didn’t say what I want so desperately to hear, which is that he is the father. But you didn’t lie — so much better. The thoughts and dreams continue but I will find a solution. Thank you!

Dream Interpretation: I Glued My Penis Back Together

June 12, 2014

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

In my terrifying dream my dick is cut into two pieces and I picked the half in my hand and tried to put it back to fix it. It was very difficult but I managed put it back, but it felt not strong enough, so I thought of applying glue to make it perfect… and then i opened my eyes.

I’m very¬†terrified¬†about the whole dream because i’m the type to hardly remember my dreams after waking up. Please help me, I need your assistant to set my mind at peace. Thank you so much!

Lauri: Unfortunately, this is a fairly common affliction men suffer in their dreams. Most often, this sort of dream is caused by something in your waking life that is causing you to feel emasculated.

At the time of this dream, did anyone around you berate you, put you down, or make you feel bad about yourself? Was anything going on where you were having a hard time “manning up” and asserting yourself?

It seems to me, from the way you were trying to glue your penis back together, that this dream may be more about a “separation” in your life that you are trying to mend. Dismemberment dreams can often be connected to a waking life dismemberment, meaning a waking life situation where someone has been cut out of your life. Just as you are trying to fix your broken penis in the dream, are you trying to fix a broken relationship in real life? The way you managed to put it back together in the dream means you do have the ability to put things back together in real life as well.

Dream Interpretation: Why Am I a Cheating Harlot in My Dreams?

June 5, 2014

0 Comments

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I have dreams literally ALL the time that I am cheating on my boyfriend. I don’t have the guts to cheat on him, and that’s something I promised I would NEVER do. I love him more than anything. All these dreams I have are about guys I know.

Dream #1: I am in my bedroom having sex with my friend’s boyfriend. I had sex with his brother a while back, but I’ve never been attracted to him. At the end of my dream I always say, “I can’t do this; I can’t cheat on my boyfriend,” and I wake up.

Dream #2: This happened last night. I dreamt that I was at a family party. This guy — who used to be like family ever since I was born, and I’ve always thought he was so attractive — was there. He has a wife and a kid now and he’s a lot older than me, but in my dream I see him and get excited and hug him and he sits down and puts me on his lap and starts making out with me. Then he says, “Let’s go have sex,” and I say, “I can’t; I just cheated on my boyfriend,” and woke up.

I really don’t remember my other dreams, but please help me, because every time I wake up it just feels like it wasn’t a dream and I feel so guilty.

Lauri:¬†Cheating dreams, whether we are the cheater or the cheated upon, always bring about one hell of an emotional response… and that’s where I would like to begin. In my latest book, Dream On It, Unlock Your Dreams Change Your Life, I have a chapter on the 10 rules to remember when decoding your dream, and one of them is that the emotion you are left with from your dream is connected to that same emotion you are experiencing over something in your waking life.

Your emotion is guilt. So what is it you are feeling guilty about in your relationship? In the dream you are cheating, so that’s a big clue. Usually cheating dreams are caused by a third wheel in the relationship, but rather than the third wheel being another person, it is usually a thing — something to which someone in the relationship is giving too much time and attention.

You are the guilty party here, so what is it that you are doing that might be causing your boyfriend to feel “cheated” out of his time and attention with you? Are you working too much? Are you spending more time with friends or family than with him? Whatever it is, deep down you know it is wrong, and not helping the relationship, so take these dreams as a wake up call to give your relationship a little more T.L.C. When you do, the dreams will stop.

Dream Interpretation: I Impregnated My Best Friend’s Sister

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I had the strangest dream where I married my best friend’s sister and then got her pregnant. This is already strange, but what doesn’t make sense is my best friend doesn’t have a sister, he’s an only child. It also couldn’t be a cousin of his, because his girl cousins are all older or younger than me by a lot. The girl in the dream was my age and she didn’t look like anybody I recognized. I don’t remember what her name was, but it doesn’t seem like it was the name of somebody I know. What does this all mean?

Lauri:¬†You are trying to connect the woman in your dream to an actual, real life woman and are looking at your dream literally rather than symbolically, which is why you can’t make sense of it. The woman in your dream is symbolic of YOU! Your dream is giving us clues as to what part of you she represents.

First of all, she is female, which means she is either your caring, nurturing self, or she is your creative self. These qualities are typically considered female energy or yin energy… the softer side of an individual.

She is also your best friend’s sister, which means she is probably a part of yourself that you like, the part of you that is a helpful friend to yourself rather than the part of you that is too hard on yourself or holds yourself back.

And finally, you married and impregnated her. This tells us she is the part of you that has committed to something recently and a part of you that is productive, the part of you that can “give birth” to new ideas, projects, etc. With all this in mind, what is in the works right now in your life? This dream is telling you to stick with it, as new things are around the corner for you!

Dream Interpretation: My Dreams Make Me Want to Contact My Ex

May 22, 2014

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I’ve been having lots of dreams lately of me cheating or wanting to cheat on my boyfriend. In the most recent one I was “hooking up” with someone that I had dated before my current boyfriend, but that he knows of, and we were hiding within the same house and we didn’t get caught. Then I wake up with this really bad anxiety to contact my ex. Does that probably mean I’m not happy anymore with my current partner?

Lauri:¬†Dreaming of hooking up with the ex is reeeeeeeeeeeally common. Typically, the ex isn’t playing himself (or herself) but instead represents something from that relationship that you wish to bring into your current one. Was there more excitement and passion? More friendship? Whatever it is, it seems that you aren’t speaking up about it but are keeping it to yourself, hence the hiding in the dream.

Contacting your ex is not the best idea. Remember, he is an ex for a reason. These dreams aren’t urging you to get back with him, but rather are enlightening you to what you feel is missing in your current relationship. So don’t keep it to yourself, if something isn’t right, if something seems to be missing, communicate that to your boyfriend. A good relationship is always under construction. Communication feeds the relationship. Keeping things to yourself will only starve it.

Dream Interpretation: My Ex and I Get Back Together and We’re…Happy!

May 15, 2014

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

My ex and I have been broken up for a year and I dream about him often. The dreams come and go but they mostly consist of us getting back together. Which I know will never happen any time soon because I messed that up when we broke up. But in these dreams I am so happy and on another level because we are finally together. This dream occurs twice a month. Any thoughts?

Lauri:¬†It is actually very common to dream of getting back together with a recent ex, even for those whose exes were horrible and abusive. In your case I believe there are two layers to this dream; one is the obvious one… your dreams are an honest expression of your desire to be back with him and happy again.

The other layer is that your deep inner mind is trying to help you come to peace with the whole thing. This is why people who were in horrible relationships get this dream of being back and happy with the terrible ex — it’s all about coming to terms and being at peace with what happened. We humans have a really hard time letting the past be in the past and we allow it to stay alive and in our present mind, so our wiser dreaming mind tries to help us be at peace with it.

So for you I say, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. Actually, I think Dr. Seuss said that… or maybe it was Bryan Cranston.

Dream Interpretation: Hubby Cheated on Me with His Assistant

May 8, 2014

1 Comment

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I have had numerous dreams of my husband cheating on me, but none quite as realistic as this last one. I dreamt he was cheating and I had found out just by asking if he was cheating and he said yes and proceeded to tell me that it was with his assistant. What do I make of this? It feels so real!

Lauri: Cheating dreams do feel extremely real, and because of this, countless men are slapped in the face first thing in the morning! It’s such a common dream that it’s practically an epidemic.

Getting the obvious out of the way, has he cheated before? If so, this dream could be your intuition at work, alerting you to the possibility — or it could be a sign that you have a big old fat trust issue in the relationship that needs to be addressed and not ignored. This could also be the case if you had been cheated on before, but not by him.

If there are no trust issues and this dream seemed to have come from left field, then it is most likely connected to a waking life feeling of being left out. Something is causing you to feel “cheated” out of the time and affection you really want with your husband. So ask yourself, of all the things he spends time doing, what is it you wish he could spend less time on? Fantasy Football? Hanging with his buddies? Work?

Whatever it is, it is something that he is very open about since he came right out and told you in the dream. Since he said he was cheating with his assistant, my money is on work being the culprit. Hopefully that is all it is, and that you aren’t jealous or suspicious of the assistant in real life. Because if that is the case… oy!

If it’s simply that work — or some other project — is taking up so much of his time, use this dream as a conversation starter to let him know you’d really love for him to find a way to spend more quality time with you… and promise that you’ll make it worth his while!

Dream Interpretation: I Delivered My Baby All By Myself

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I had a  dream after two months of my marriage in which I saw myself giving birth to a baby without the help of anyone.  After I gave birth I called a medical practitioner to help me with the cleaning up. What does this mean?


Lauri: ¬†It’s very possible this dream is a sign that you are ready to start a family. When our biological clock starts ticking, all our conscious mind and subconscious mind can think about is baby, baby, baby. Often the subconscious mind will start giving us hints in our dreams before our conscious mind catches up. This could be why you gave birth in the dream by yourself, because hubby may not be “with you” yet as far as the idea of starting a family, which is usually the case. For example, I was more than ready for a baby a good year before my hubby was. We gals have a bit more of a time limitation than men.

If you are absolutely not ready for children and this dream seemed to come completely from out of the blue, then the birth would be symbolic of something new that has recently developed in your life, something that requires a lot of attention and nurturing from you, like a new job, going back to school, a new business or project, etc. It would be something that is all of your own doing and your own responsibility in real life since you gave birth all by yourself in the dream. Hopefully it is NOT a sign that you are already feeling alone in your marriage. Oy!

The cleaning of the mess is an interesting element and may be connected to your need to straighten out a situation that got “messy” in real life or a need to organize yourself so you can better care for this new development.¬† Whatever the case, it seems to be a good dream pointing to new beginnings for you!

The 10 Types of Sex Dreams

April 17, 2014

1 Comment

available on Amazon

Freud, Schmroid. If you’re looking for a good book on the interpretation of dreams, check out the one by our very own Lauri Loewenberg, dream interpreter extraordinaire! Dream On It: Unlock Your Dreams, Change Your Life (published by St. Martin’s Press) features hundreds of real dream interpretations and a comprehensive dream symbol dictionary to help you understand and make the most of your nocturnal visions, especially the sexy ones. There’s an entire chapter dedicated to sex dreams, which Lauri says are often “not about a physical union you want, but rather a psychological union you need!” There are 10 kinds of sex dreams; below are 5 of them; check out Dream On It for the other five archetypes (The Friend, The Same Gender, Oral Sex, Family Members, and Masturbation):

  1. The Mystery Lover – This is the most common of all sex dreams. Many of us wonder if this dream is actually a glimpse of our soul mate who might be out there somewhere waiting for us.¬† Alas, t‚Äôis not so.¬† But what is so is that the unknown, faceless man or woman that often appears in our dreams does indeed hold significance….Our dreams have a cool way of showing us the different parts of our personality in the form of a person so we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and what makes us tick. That being said, the mystery lover in your dreams is the embodiment, the personification of the qualities we tend to associate with that gender….Throughout life we struggle to incorporate the right balance of each [gender] into our personalities and behavior.¬† A man wants to be caring and understanding, yet he doesn‚Äôt want to be a sissy.¬† A woman wants to assert herself, yet she doesn‚Äôt want to be labeled the B word!¬† Our mystery lover dreams are guiding us towards that perfect balance of firm and gentle, bold and caring, yin and yang.
  2. Cheating — These dreams can be infuriating, worrisome and the cause of many a slap across the face first thing in the morning.¬† In fact, in a recent survey I conducted with over 5000 participants, the cheating dream came in as the #1 most common dream! As upsetting as these dreams can be, the good news is that they rarely indicate that your mate is getting his or her pleasures elsewhere.¬† They do suggest, however, that something rather than someone is taking the time and attention from your mate that you feel you deserve.‚Ä®…[If] you are the one straying in your dreams you need to ask yourself what you may be doing that is taking your attention away from your mate.¬† The guilt you feel in the dream is a tell tale sign that, deep down, you are aware that this may not be sitting well with your significant other….Once you can pinpoint what it is your mate is ‚Äúcheating on you‚ÄĚ with, or what you may be guilty of giving too much time to, it‚Äôs time to compromise.¬† Offer to give up or cut back on something your mate isn‚Äôt a big fan of if he or she promises to cut back on the activity that is causing you to feel left out. If you both stick to the compromise, you‚Äôll find that the dreams will stop.
  3. The Ex — Past lovers are very popular characters in our naughty dreams. Even though it may be light years since you were with this person, he or she STILL continues to appear in your dreams, bringing those old feelings back to the surface that leave you wondering if you still may be holding a flame.¬† ‚Ä®‚Ä®Most often, the ex we dream about the most is our first love.¬† Strangely enough, we continue to dream of our first loves, even if we’ve moved on into a happy marriage.¬† Don’t worry, it’s not that you want the ex back, it’s that you want what he or she represents back: excitement, bubbles, passion!¬† You are likely to get these dreams when you are in a dry spell or when your marriage or current relationship gets a little too routine and humdrum, as all relationships do from time to time.¬† Your dream is using your ex to remind you of the passion that is still alive inside of you.¬† These dreams are actually good for you and are alerting you to the fact that the passion department doesn‚Äôt want to become a thing of the past.
  4. The Co-Worker – This dream can make work a very uncomfortable place to be. Unless your co-worker causes your heart to skip a beat and your mind to wander into naughty, naughty land, then your sex dream(s) about him or her are nothing to cause you concern.¬† However, understanding the dream is well worth your while because odds are, that dream is actually trying to help you improve yourself at work.¬† Your dreaming mind may be telling you that you need to ‚Äúcome together‚ÄĚ on some level with your co-worker, for the sake of work, that you need to have a meeting of the minds in order to make co-existing and co-working more efficient.¬† ‚Ä®‚Ä®But what if you don‚Äôt really have much to do with a particular co-worker during the day but you find yourself knocking boots at night?¬† All you need to do is ask yourself what stands out about that person.¬† Is he really good with computers?¬† Does the boss seem to favor her?¬†¬† Maybe he‚Äôs easy going and doesn‚Äôt seem to have a care in the world.¬† There is very likely a quality he or she possesses that your dreaming mind feels you would do well to take on as your own.
  5. The Boss РShagging your employer at night can sure make it difficult to come into work the next day.  If this is the case with you, remember, sex dreams are not necessarily about the person but rather about what he or she represents.  In the case of your boss it is most likely power, authority, management skills, decision making, et cetera that you need to merge into your own life.
 Do you need to take on the role of boss at home and better manage those unruly kids?  Are you facing a tough decision?  Do you need to fire or get rid of a certain element, person or behavior in your life?  Or perhaps you simply need to merge with your boss psychologically in order to deal with a client or project. Whatever the case may be, your boss dream is telling you that it’s time to take charge! Being decisive and authoritative would suit you well now.

Dream Interpretation: My Boyfriend and I Had Matching Nightmares

April 10, 2014

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. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

My boyfriend and I had been arguing all night. Sometime around 4 am, going on 5, we both had a nightmare and addressed each other about it around 8 in the morning. We weren’t in the same place, he was home and I was home. I find it so ironic how we had the same dream (when we weren’t even around each other) let alone more ironic how we woke up at the same time.¬†His dream was that he got jumped.¬†My dream was that these kids he had altercations with were outside my house begging him to come out & pulled out guns but the cops came.¬†Is this symbolizing it’s gonna come true? I’m scared, I’m thinking about visiting a fortune teller. Please help!


Lauri:¬†Oh for goodness sake, save your money! Having the same or similar dream as someone else on the same night isn’t terribly uncommon. It is called “shared dreaming” and it probably happens even more than we realize because we do not always remember nor¬† report our dreams to others in the morning. I’ve even addressed this in a previous column here at EMandLO.com. The reason your dreams were so similar is because you both went to sleep with the same issue on your mind — your fight — so both of your subconscious minds’ addressed the fight.

In his dream, he got jumped. That reflects how he felt after your fight. He felt attacked… by you, and his dreaming mind equated this to being ganged up on. In your dream the gang was begging him to come out. That probably reflects your role in the fight. When you two were fighting, were you begging him to “come out” and open up about something?

The guns are the emotional weapons you used or both of you used on each other. Guns in dreams are all about shooting off at the mouth, criticism, emotionally wounding words, etc.  The cops showing up represents that you two managed to put a stop to the fight before it got too bad.

So don’t worry, these dreams are not a warning of things to come but rather an honest expression of how you both feel about what went down in your fight. I highly recommend you both continue to share your dreams with each other, as it will help you stay tuned into one another. It’s something fresh to talk about every day, often something fun to laugh about, but most importantly, your dreams are the most pure and honest expressions you have. And in any healthy relationship, honesty is always the best policy.
