I've been having sexual dreams featuring subbies mom. And my own. Help me, it's been a long time since I got laid.

I dream of crushing my enemies, seeing them driven before me, and hearing the lamination of their women.

If you dream your boyfriend is cheating on you that doesn't mean when you wake up you can have a go at him. Go back to sleep and let him dream about his awesome firewar disaster.

Heh.  Every man who has spent time with a woman has had the experience where she is pissed off at you for no apparent reason, first thing in the morning.  When pressed, they admit it's because they had a dream that you were cheating on them.

I was all "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" first time it happened.

And they're not "just kidding" mad, they're seriously upset with you. For cheating in their dream.

Never had that problem, but then again I don't dream about fires, wars and disasters.  But if I never again have that damn nightmare where all my teeth fall out, I won't complain.

I dont remember my dreams at all.  IF, and it is a rare occasion I do remember dreams, then it is usually just nonsense I quickly realize is random thoughts passing and can disgard upon waking.  My sleep life is boring to say the least.  I don't ever see myself being able to lucid dream because of this.

verbaltoxin: My wife has those, "You were cheating on me," dreams often.

I usually dream about the zombie apocalypse.


I actually had a zombie apocalypse dream last night.  Except the zombie invasion was localized to my house, and there were just zombie mobs continuously spawning in my basement and coming up the stairs, and I, along with Will Smith, a couple of my coworkers, and a couple of the guys from Attack on Titan, had to fight them off with swords.  It was like some weird tower defense-like endurance game.

I had another dream recently that someone had planted a bunch of bombs in a hospital I was in by attaching them to mechanical radio-controlled dragonflies, and I had to escape by constructing a hang glider out of bedsheets and toilet paper tubes and then jumping off the roof with it.

I often dream that I can jump really high and gradually glide back down to the ground. It's not quite flying, but pretty close, and a lot of fun.

"men have nightmares about fires, floods, wars and other disasters"

I don't think I've ever dreamed of those things.

If I have a nightmare it is usually that I am on the run from the police. They are never visibly pursuing me, but I am constantly moving from place to place with the knowledge that I am wanted for a crime that I have no knowledge of having committed.
 
2014-02-03 09:56:46 AM
I can't remember my last nightmare, but I can't say that I've ever had one about being cheated on.

The one nightmare I do remember very vividly was years ago and it was about living in a warzone and trying to survive, mostly.  I've had a few where I died, too, usually in a car accident.

Guess I'm weird.

Your dreams sound pretty farking kickass. Mine are just boring stuff that happened to me during the day. It's like my brain records the day, breaks it up into short segments and replays it on shuffle.

IIRC, Freud said if you have those kinda dreams it's because you feel guilty for desiring something you know you shouldn't.

I haven't had it in a few years, but I used to get one similar to this. I could sort of turn gravity off for myself and start floating. Usually around tree-top level I'd have enough and want to get back down but be unable, and I'd start getting paranoid the neighbors would see me and start laughing, "Look at this asshole, he can't even gravity right". Not that they could float to start with, but being the only person around who can't not float is rather embarrassing, I suppose.

I've also killed my evil doppleganger. He was a dick. No goatee, but he showed up out of nowhere and intended me harm.

The difference between men and women is... the difference is, well, you see, it's that women are afraid of rows, and men are afraid of columns.

The secret to a happy marriage is to sleep diagonally.

Same here. And because I'm boring and single I'll sleep for like 10 hours during the weekend, still hardly any dreaming occurs that I recall.

In a way I envy you. I have fantastically vivid dreams, and they're usually really good. So more often than not I wake up thinking "ah fark, it was just a dream... then by the time I'm up and in the shower I've completely forgotten all but the most memorable dreams and can't even remember what it was my life is missing, but still feel depressed. I hate that horrible moment of realising that it was all just a dream.

the only nightmares that scare me anymore are the ones where something is threatening my Kids.  the other night I dreamt that I was in an near plane crash.  When I woke up the next morning I thought it was cool.

A week ago I woke up in the middle of the night because I dreamt my kids were locked out of the house after school and were stuck in the cold.

Gunther: Your dreams sound pretty farking kickass. Mine are just boring stuff that happened to me during the day. It's like my brain records the day, breaks it up into short segments and replays it on shuffle.


My life is pretty modest and boring otherwise, but I will admit to having pretty kickass dreams most of my life.  They're usually action/adventure-based and tend to involve random assortments of characters from movies or TV shows, like some sort of mad libs crossover crack fanfiction.  So I end up with stuff like Q from Star Trek hijacking a locomotive and Batman pursuing him in a pink hot air balloon while fretting over whether or not he can find a good pizza joint from there.

When I was in middle and high school, my friends always wanted to hear about my latest funky dreams so I got into the habit of mentally replaying them as soon as I woke up from them in order to store them to "hard" memory for later recollection, and that may have helped me remember dreams better in general.  But as for why I end up dreaming about stuff like Transformers that turn into inflatable chairs... I guess I'm just lucky(?).

Isn't the "Double Jeopardy" rule in effect? i.e. we get to bang her friend once for free because we've already been punished for it
 
2014-02-03 11:28:52 AM
I dream about houses. That's frequently a core focus in my dreams.
 
2014-02-03 11:36:45 AM
Mostly, when I dream*, there is either some sort of conflict or emergency involved (war, natural disaster, etc.), or it's a flying dream, which are perennial favorites and I *WISH* I could just sort of run into the wind a bit and start to glide.

I also occasionally dream in Morse.  No real defined visuals, just an auditory dream where I'm communicating in Morse code.  Those are fairly rare, though.  Used to be more common when I was copying Morse for a living.


*More properly, when I remember a dream

Common themes for my dreams tend to be tornadoes, flying (I have to flap), and landing a plane on a residential road.  Like someone else mentioned above, I also often dream about a tooth being loose or coming out (but just one).

The only nightmares I have nowadays are various scenarios where my mother makes life-changing decisions for me behind my back.  Like, I'll dream she sold all my clothes while I was at work because I "didn't tell her not to", or she'll randomly take my car with her on vacation, or she'll move all her stuff into my house.  While she's not quite that bad in real life (though she does habitually make plans involving me without consulting me, like, "Hey, I told someone you'd do X, so go do X"), I do wonder if my lasting disdain for her is reinforced by my occasional nightmares of her ruining my life.
 
2014-02-03 12:05:39 PM
I rarely have violent dreams, but since high school I can make any dream become lucid very easily. If a dream starts going in a bad direction, I'll often mentally rewind to a previous point in the dream and go for another option than I had the first time, which changes the result of the dream. However, I am also allergic to aspirin and will hallucinate to a really scary degree when I take something that I did not know has aspirin in it, so I may be wired a little differently.

No wonder women seem unhinged, you can't even dream of real problems.

My most vivid and recurring dream is one set in the not-too distant future. The future more or less looks the same as it does now, except for an invention that has replaced almost all forms of entertainment. A virtual-reality device was created that once engaged, you were the main character of the game/movie/etc. Users could influence, interact, and control the environment with limitless scenarios unraveling controlled entirely by the user. Your biggest fears, dreams, and desires become realized and manifested in such a way that is so real that users cannot distinguish real-world from user-generated world. As a result, human progress is severely hampered in a state of complacency with the world essentially frozen in time so-to-speak. Humans rarely interact with one another, as the virtual experience always produces ideal results.

In my dream, after work when it is raining and cool I go to a "movie theater" which is essentially a large venue now where the audience is able to connect to one another to share a similar experience (thus creating the cast for the experience). The theater is a dome structure with low lighting, rich wood walls and sconces reminiscent of an expensive steakhouse, with polished stone floors. Branching off the dome are the individual rooms that are much smaller than a standard theater (about 20 or so seats). I sit down to use the machine and then my dream becomes super vivid from this point as I dream within the dream. When I engage in the machine, the device shorts out sending a jolt through my body ending the experience, except instead of being back in the theater, I am in a white room and in this room people shout "He's waking up!" The people seem to be alarmed and scrambling. I feel different like every sense of my body is hyper-active and reality is much more real. I feel invigorated which is a completely strange sensation for dreaming within the dream. At this point, I realize I am in a machine that is similar to the machine in the theater - meaning I wasn't dreaming anymore but this point was reality. I noticed that I had extreme physical and mental abilities, and was able to escape the room from my captors.

Humans are using other humans as a means of entertainment, like one massive Reality TV show. The captors are not alien, they are us in the extreme future and have reached a point where they are well, bored with everything. From this point on, I basically go on a rampage destroying my captors and awakening others. The part that gets conflicting, is that in my fight I come across my fiance who was one of those controlling an avatar (so at first I don't know what to think). She was the one actually who allowed me to wake up and together we kick ass and liberate people. It's a pretty cool dream. I could probably draw it from start to finish in all of the details, most of which I have no idea what the point of reference was for as it seems extremely foreign to what I know.

Women don't dream of lies and infidelity. They dream of me giving them a vicious buggering while singing "hunka hunka burning love". Backdoor, if it's a really good one.
