Dream symbol Forbidden sex


taboo subject, fling, tingling, perverted, remorse, condemnation, guilt, restlessness, self-doubt

With the term "forbidden sex" one associates as an expression in the first place perhaps special sexual practices, which one keeps rather secret and does not like to talk about it, since they could be regarded as perverted in the conventional sense. In strictly religious countries, however, there are legal rules about what can and cannot happen behind the four walls. Sadomaso is one of the socially accepted taboos on this level or also group sex orgies or a dream in which sex with relatives for example becomes a topic.

Among legally forbidden practices are irrefutably sodomy, incest and rape almost in all parts of the world.

Such a forbidden sex dream, in which perverted tendencies come to light, could lead the dreamer to feelings of shame, as he is ashamed of his fantasies, which come up quite clearly at the dream level.

General dream interpretation

Often erotic dreams are about sexual practices that are considered frowned upon in waking life according to social norms. Usually the dream symbol "forbidden sex" indicates that the dreamer longs for more varied sexual practices and sensual tension inhis love relationship.

It depends on the particular dream situation, accordingly other wishes and desires can be interpreted. If one dreams of sex with a stranger, it promises that one will get to know one's own hitherto unknown character traits.

According to the general interpretation, a dream of a fling symbolizes to the dreamer that he or she lacks spontaneity and zest for life . If bisexuality becomes a dream theme, this refers to the attempt to bring the male and female aspects into harmony.

If a woman dreams of working as a prostitute, this clarifies the reference to the desire for freedom. This dream image may not only refer to sexuality, but also spread to other levels of life.

One of the taboo subjects of the social order is certainly the sexual act in front of an audience. If one engages in sexual pleasure in front of spectators in a dream, according to the general dream analysis, this indicates that the dreamer lacks appreciation and recognition by others. Thus, "forbidden sex" represents the dreaming person's desire to be the center of attention. If the person loves voyeurism, according to the dream interpretation, this encourages the dreamer to open up more to his own relationship partner and reveal his intimate desires.

If one engages in forbidden sex in a dream and climaxes in the process, this indicates difficulties in the relationship that should be dealt with. These seem to dissolve soon with attention.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychologically, the dream symbol of forbidden sex does not represent an exceptional tendency. Rather, such dreams illustrate the nature of one's personality and the unconscious emotional world of the dreamer.

According to psychoanalysis, when a woman seduces her own girlfriend in a dream, this dream image conveys a deep connection with her. In detail, the forbidden sex in the dream plot may allude to specific traits of the other woman, who may be envied and adored or completely condemned, and that serves as a mirror for the dreamer himself.

Fantasies of rape at the dream level are interpreted by psychological dream interpretation as a tingling symbol that the dreaming person wants to give up control in everyday responsibilities in the area of intimacy and surrender to the other person willy-nilly. Similar is the dream interpretation when a woman dreams of the frowned upon sadomasochistic sex and wants to be dominated or surrenders herself as a submissive.

If the dreamer himself appears from the dominant part in the dream, this signals that he has an enormous need for control. However, this interpretation is to be considered differently depending on the personality. If persons with great insecurity in life dream of taboo sex practices, this serves as a prompting sign for more self-determined actions, independence and assertiveness.

Spiritual dream interpretation

From a spiritual point of view, the dream image "forbidden sex" refers to the intimate need to verbally communicate with others in intimacy and intimacy. From a spiritual point of view, this dream symbol represents restlessness and skepticism towards oneself, which should first be worked on and resolved.
