What does it mean when you dream about genitals?

While many common objects can symbolize genitals in dreams, a dream that includes one’s genitals is usually referring to the sexual side of life. Exactly what is being said about one’s sexuality is a function of what happens in the dream, and whether the dreamer feels pleasure, pain, guilt, or some other emotion. (See also Penis.)

This typically sexual dream brings out your attitudes and concerns about your sexuality. If you are feeling guilty, stressed or concerned about your sexual activities (or a lack of them), they will be reinforced in these explicit dreams containing sexual organs. If you are dreaming about the sexual organs of other people, you may be concerned about their sexuality or other troubling issues that are surrounding them. Dreaming about sexual organs usually has something to do with sex—BUT not necessarily. Therefore think about the other details in the dream and consider issues such as personal power, fertility, and any other associations that you can make regarding the genitals from the dream.
