Intercourse

(dreams)
It is very difficult to name just a few possible interpretations for this dream. It is complex and complicated, and the interpretations vary with each dreamer and with the situations in the dream. A sexual dream may be about physical pleasure but it may also be about power, control, manipulation, virility, and effectiveness. It may be a form of wish fulfillment or a memory. In most cases it is not a prediction of things to come in the near future. Freud believed that experiencing sexual pleasure in your dreams usually expresses desire, and the dream is a form of wish fulfillment. If you are watching other people having sex it may be a reflection on your emotional and mental concerns about sexual performance or interaction.
