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) This week, a reader asks Lauri:

Been having the strangest dream: I’m a man, 30+, been married for 6 years, and have been having the strangest dreams: My wife and I are getting intimate and suddenly I go down on her and she has a penis and I begin to perform oral sex. This dream has occurred twice: one where we are in bed, and another where we are in a bath tub. Weird.

Lauri: Unlike Freud’s take on the topic, not everything in our dreams is about sex. Heck, even genitals in dreams aren’t really about our genitals!  Instead, genitalia, to the dreaming mind, actually represents one’s male or female energy. That being said, it might bring you comfort to know that your wife’s penis in this dream is most likely representative of her male assertive energy. Has she taken charge in some way in waking life? Is she “standing up” for herself… ahem? The oral aspect of this dream most likely has to do with communication because – like oral – it is the mouth that is used to communicate. Have you encouraged your wife to “man up” in some capacity?  I also think the location of the oral sex is significant. The bed may suggest that there is something that needs to be “put to rest” and the bath tub suggests there is something that she needs to cleanse herself of… and being assertive and taking action on it is what it takes to get the “job” (get it?) done.
