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 woman asks Lauri:
I have this recurring dream of having sex where I never recognize my partner. What does that mean?
Find out after the jump…
Lauri: Ah! The classic “mystery lover” dream… a very common dream for both genders. What you need to keep in mind is that when you dream (meaning everyone) you are the embodiment of narcissism because just about everything and everyone in your dream is all about you, you, YOU! That being said, these dreams do NOT mean you have an underlying desire to bed any ol’ guy that crosses your path. Rather these seemingly random, unrecognizable fellas are standing in for a part of your own personality that you do not recognize in waking life, a part that is trying to get your attention through these dreams. Perhaps you’re a helluva writer, or could excel at investment banking. It is probably a skill or talent others recognize in you but you just haven’t accepted yet. Whatever this mystery quality is, your dreaming mind is telling you that once you bring it into your life, just as you bring the man into yourself in these dreams, it could eventually allow you to give birth to something wonderful, just as the purpose of sex (even tho it’s a favorite past time for many of us) is to create new life.
