Dream Interpretation: My Boyfriend Switched Bodies with Me

Love + Sex
January 16, 2014

Other people's dreams are never interesting…except when they're about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

A few months ago my boyfriend described a dream he had. He said that he and I were having sex and it was really amazing. And then he said that right as he was about to orgasm in the dream he sort of got this tunnel vision, and the moment he orgasmed he said that he was in my body, but with his own thoughts. He was looking with my eyes and my body. I also wanted to know more about this switching bodies dream… and is this a common dream? (Not necessarily this specific details or even the sexual aspect of it being common, but the aspect of being in someone else's body.)

Lauri: Your boyfriend's dream is actually a really great example of what sex dreams are really about; it's not so much about the sex but about the joining together, the merging of ideas, opinions or qualities. Your boyfriend's dream seems to show us that, not only is he really into you, but that he also really seems to understand you. Seeing through your eyes is symbolic of "seeing your point of view."

Also notice how he had tunnel vision just before he could see through your eyes. That's a common phrase we use to describe someone who typically sees things only one way. Prior to his dream, do you recall having some sort of intimate conversation where you were able to open his mind or change his opinion? Did something happen that allowed him to be more understanding of you? It's a cool dream and a great sign that he's - ahem - "coming" from a really good place.

As far as switching bodies in a dream, it's not one of the more common dream elements we get, but it certainly does happen as it has been reported to me quite a bit. Depending on the context of the dream, it most often means that you are now walking in someone else's shoes, so to speak, or are gaining a greater understanding of them. Again, it all depends on the context of the dream.

Hope this helps clear things up for you! Also? I think your boyfriend, after hearing about this dream of his, deserves a mind-blowing orgasm - so get to it!
