Let’s talk about sex… dreams. About friends.
Dreaming about having sex with a friend is one of the most common sex dreams there is. It could leave you feeling either oddly turned on, or disturbed to the point where you’re frantically asking Google ‘WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?’ as soon as you wake up.
But what does it mean?
If you have a sexual dream about a friend who you’ve never really looked at that way and it freaks you out, don’t fret. It doesn’t mean you’re harbouring a closeted sexual attraction towards them, there’s actually a simple explanation for it.
And it’s quite sweet, really.
Many dream experts believe that sexual dreams are not really about the act of sex itself, but instead more about the friend that is being dreamed about. Meaning it’s all down to the qualities they have that you like about them.
According to dream psychologist Dr Ian Wallace, “A friend tends to reveal a talent that you admire and would like to possess yourself.”
Basically, having a sex dream about your platonic friend just means they have certain attributes that you appreciate about them in your waking life. Not that weird after all.
Well, it may be mortifying but loving your friends is nothing to be ashamed of, people.
