Dream Interpretation: OMG I Slept with My Mom!

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 male reader asks Lauri:

I have sex with my mom in my dreams WTH is that all about?

Lauri: Yes, major “Eew!” factor with this one.  But fear not!  Remember, dreams are symbolic and not to be taken literally.  Sex, to the dreaming mind, is not always about a physical union you want, but is more often about a psychological union you need.  Do you need to connect with your mom in some way?  Have you drifted apart, or do you no longer get along?  Your dream may be urging you to re-unite. Or do you guys have an awesome relationship?  If so, you may get this dream whenever you two really connect and get each other.

It is also possible that your mom is not playing herself at all but rather is standing in for your own “inner Mom,” meaning the part of you that is nurturing and that cares for and “mothers” yourself and others.  Your recurring “Oedipus” dreams may merely be a reflection of the fact that you are a big, caring softy.

Whatever the case, these dreams in NO WAY indicate that you are an incestuous freak.

Also, just to place this out there for people who feel ashamed, incestuous fantasies while awake aren’t intrinsically bad either; the reason for their occurrences can be just like the dreams, except you have control. What you’ll most often find is, unless your parent is smoking hot and you connect on a perfect level, that your attraction is not really to that person, but to who you wish or thought that person was. Like in the article above, you may crave a better psychological relationship rather than physical. Most often, you can have an incest fantasy, see the person in… Read more »

I’ve had this same dream ..it’s my mom but in her 30’s. It feels so real and the emotion of love and desire run very deep between us. I’ve come to understand; as it was said earlier, that they’re symbols .. she symbolizes anoher person (whom I’ve had a relationship with) who wears the persona of my mom … the prsonality traits etc .. I do have romantic feelings for this person and she for me in a on-off .. hot-cold type relationship. There’s another prson whom she embodies in the same manner, another whom I never got totally over.… Read more »
