What It Means To Dream About Getting Caught Having Sex


A while ago, I collaborated with famed dream expert, Lauri Loewenberg, to decode any and all of your freakiest sex dreams.  And I've had a guilty conscience about it ever since.

I know there are far freakier sex dreams than the 22 general concepts that are mentioned on that list. We all have deeply personal, weirdly detailed dreams that we sometimes just can't seem to shake out of our heads. 

Like, WHY did you dream about that guy from the grocery store yesterday? WHY was he wearing a top hat and nothing else?! What does it mean? Do you have to tell your boyfriend? Are you actually into the weird grocery store guy?!

So, I've decided to start a column. You guys can submit your sex dreams to, and we will have Lauri interpret one dream a week.

This week's dream comes from 39-year-old Charlyn, who dreamed of horrible repercussions when she was caught having sex with a married man:

Here's Lauri's interpretation:

I hope this was helpful to Charlyn and anyone else who might have had a similar dream!
