Understanding Sexual Dreams

Yeah, yeah, yeah, go ahead and pretend like you've never had one. *yawns* Well here's the info anyway.
The Purpose of Sex Dreams:
Sexual dreams allow us to work through problems. Either with ourself or our relationship. They let us act out or revisit a scenario, focusing on unresolved issues. It is a way for us to deal with unfinished business, such as from an old relationship. Some are simply a way for us to celebrate life or satisfy a need that is not being met in our waking lives.
Sex with your current partner:
These dreams act to reassure and strenthen bonds. They counteract any emotional insecurity that you may be having. Clues to look for here relate to how your current partner is responding toward you in the dream, this will help you understand what needs to be worked on in your waking life.
Rape dreams:
If, in waking life, there has been any sexual violence in your life, then this dream is part of the process of healing. It can help restore and reclaim your own personal identity which has been invaded.
Sex with a family member:
Unless familial sexual abuse has occured, this type of dream represents a closed inward perspective. It can be a focus of attention on an activity that might bring some shame or regret. Be aware of the dream's atmosphere and your feelings toward the family member involved to find clues at to the issues that are present in waking life.
Sex with a stranger:
The stranger in the dream is symbolic of a lack of self-awareness. Your subconscious is trying to grasp at anything or anyone in order to better understand itself.
Homosexual dream:
This reflects a yearning to be like someone you admire.
Voyeurism in dreams:
Having (dream) sex in a public place can indicate a yearning to be more extroverted and expressive around others.
Sex with a friend or colleague:
In a more literal dream, this signifies a strong physical connection, attraction or desire which may or may not be recognized in your waking life. Meaphorically it symbolizes an equality in the friendship.
Sex with a celebrity:
This symbolizes an aspiration to be 'in their shoes'. In this way you are getting a taste of fame and recognition. As a dream omen, this could mean that help with a current problem will arive from an unexpected source.
