I had a super disturbing dream last night that I hooked up with my mom…and after resisting it for a while, I ended up kind of liking it?! (In my dream, I mean). I woke up so revolted and like wtf! My mom and I are super close, but I’m certainly not gay for her. I tried to look up the meaning, but all the interpretations were for guys who had sex dreams about their moms and talked a lot about Oedipus complexes. Do any psychologically-versed bees out there have any idea what it could’ve meant?!

Honestly? It means nothing. I’m cognitive-behavioral primarily in my approach with therapy. like a lot psychologists, feel Freudian was off base with dream analysis. Dreams are like your trash – random and not really worth digging through. Sometimes it may seem like they make sense, but it’s just coincidence of random neurons firings.
Try not to read into your dream. Focus on more positive and real things and let the dream go.

I’m a psychologist in training! I’ve never heard of any actual evidence showing that dream analysis has any bearing in your real life. You can thank Freud for coming up with that one. For what it’s worth, I’ve had many strange dreams about having sex with people I am absolutely not sexually attracted to, even family members, along the same vein of being weirded out and slightly resisting at first and then going along with it. If it’s not regularly recurring I don’t think it means anything.

paigelove : oh god I can absolutely understand wanting to bathe yourself in Clorox after waking up from a dream like that, but our minds are a strange place when they’re free to wander unleashed during sleep.
it obviously meant nothing and is not a reflection upon your relationship with your mother. if you stop dwelling on it, you’ll forget it in less than a week. 🙂

You say that you and your mom are super close. I assume that she is comfortable to you and represents a safe place in your waking life. Sometimes, even in waking , the brain confuses one type of pleasure with sexual. I wouldn’t think too much about the actual sex part. But it could mean that you are feeling unsafe about something and are finding comfort with mom

Oh honey that means nothing!! We’ve all had those awful dreams they don’t mean anything.
