What do sex thoughts mean?

Asked by nicobanks (2926points) November 1st, 2010

Apparently sex dreams are not about sex, but about working out other issues in your subconscious.

What about when you’re awake? Is it possible to have sexual thoughts about a person that aren’t, really, about your sexual interest in them? Could those thoughts really be about something else, something non-sexual?

If you think so, please provide examples.

Nope. I think in a daydream it just means your probably horny and the person in your thoughts is someone you find hot that will fit the bill.
As for sex in your sleeping state, I think it can also just mean sexual desire. But its true that it may not always be the case.

Yeah, i’m pretty sure that if i’m having sexual thoughts about someone, i’m not about to ask them to bake me a cake :¬)

No, if you are having sexual thoughts about a person, you are having sexual thoughts about them.

Yes, it’s about the person, but it’s important to remember that it’s also a fantasy. It has little to do with reality.

Desiring a person releases all kinds of creative impulses. Depending on your area of creativity, it tends to inspire you to do a lot of work. One of the creative impulses is also sexual desire and sexual fantasy. You might start creating huge stories about things that you and the object of your desire might do.

The more close you get, the more you spark these fantasies in each other until either you get together and make them real, or you don’t get together and you crash, emotionally.

I don’t know if it helps to remember they are fantasies (not real, nor likely to become real) or not. Knowing you are fantasizing doesn’t help you stop fantasizing. It can make you feel like a nut for thinking that way.

Hope that helps.

Don’t be ridiculous. Sex thoughts are exactly that.

What it means is that you are human.

Daydreaming about sex could be a power trip… ie ‘that bitch needs a good fuck’ or ‘I will fuck you’

When looking for motivations or meaning never discount the obvious.

Thank you, everyone, for your responses!

Except maybe @YoBob – there was no reason to be condescending.

@flutherother Yeah, for sure; I’m just also curious about possibilities other than the obvious.

A sex thought is a sex thought is a sex thought.. Now, a cigar thought might be something else!

@nicobanks Just calling them like I see them.

All the best…

I think I get your question @nicobanks . Daydreaming about someone you know seems fairly obvious but I’ve had sexual “impulse” thoughts that come out of nowhere and have nothing to do with attraction or feeling horny.
If, for example, I get this when dealing with a particularly difficult person, I think it’s the reptilian part of the brain saying “Hey. Quick way to take control of the situation.” Generally useless advice from the brain swamp.

@YoBob Call it what you want, it doesn’t change the fact that you were rude to me for no good reason.

nicobanks's avatar

Woah, flame-bait? I’m very curious to read it… I swear I won’t rise to it! LOL.

ucme's avatar

@nicobanks sounds like a fishing term to me. What do we attach this “flame bait” to? A HOT ROD perhaps? :¬)

YoBob's avatar

@nicobanks Yep, your right and I apologize. I was having a rather snippy day yesterday. I too am human.

nicobanks's avatar

@YoBob As we all are, thanks YoBob for your apology, I really appreciate that :)
