What It Means To Have A Sex Dream About A Friend Coming Onto You, From An Expert


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 here, and we will have Lauri interpret one dream a week.

This week, we have 18-year-old Lainey*, who had a dream about being pressured to have sex by someone she didn't necessarily want to sleep with:

Here's Lauri's interpretation:

I hope this was helpful to Lainey and anyone else who had a dream about someone pressuring them into having sex.

If you have your own sex dream you'd like to have Lauri interpret, feel free to email it to us at And read our last installment here.
