Every Monday I get to dissect a naughty dream for my friends at Em And Lo: Sex Love And Everything Inbetween  This week a pregnant gal writes in wondering why she keeps having dirty dreams about other women…

So I was about 6 months pregnant and I started having sex dreams of other women. In the latest one I was making out with an old friend whom I haven’t been around in 3 years and I was touching her boobs and I was getting really turned on and then I started to masturbate myself and I had an amazing orgasm.

I have been racking my brain about these sex dreams about women and I keep thinking that I’m attracted to everything and everyone! I have been in a relationship with my fiancé for 4 years and we have an awesome son who is 1 and I was hoping you could help me out here. Thanks a lot!

Lauri: Let me assure you that you need to rack your brain no more because those girl-on-girl dreams are sooooo very common for pregnant women. The reason is because you are very excited about being a woman and having the ability to grow new life inside of you. There is nothing more womanly than being pregnant. It is what we are built to do.  You are very “pleased with yourself” and your ability to procreate and that is where the masturbation comes in.

But why this old friend?  Well, what was she like? Is she a very maternal, nurturing type of personality? Was she a mom before you? Maybe she’s just hot! There is something about her that represents womanhood to you.

You are touching her breasts because they are a big part of becoming a mother, they fill with milk specially made to nurture the child. When you were pregnant, were you going back and forth about whether you would breast feed or not?

I know this analysis kinda takes the hot factor out of the dream, but being pregnant truly is a magical experience and you — like so many other pregnant women before you — were merely “falling in love” with the fact that you are a woman.

My book So, What Did You Dream Last Night? has a whole chapter on dreams during pregnancy and how they change with each tri-mester.  It covers daddy-to-be dreams too!  Grab yourself a copy and you’ll also find out why we need to listen to the animals that show up in our dreams, why nightmares are good for you and so much more!
