Have you ever woken up from a sex dream about a colleague or boss and really questioned everything about it?
Well luckily, you’re not alone. Nearly 1 in 3 people in relationships have sex dreams at least once a week.
More than 40% of men and women have sex dreams about their ex, with 46% of Brits thinking about getting down and dirty in a location that they don’t want to be caught in.
The study, conducted by The Sleep Judge, surveyed a whopping 1,011 people in relationships and asked them about the details of their sex dreams.
It was more common for women to dream of their partner, while men were twice as likely to think about their co-workers in a sexual way.
Men were also twice as likely to dream sexually about their significant other’s friends, but many of their partners did the same thing.
And more than half of both genders, but especially women, were ready and willing to share the details of their sex dreams with their partners once they woke up.
That’s nearly 30% of the time that people share the juicy details of their sex dreams that also find it a turn-on.
The study also found that the more a respondent had sex in real life, the likely they were to dream about bondage or BDSM.
Although 1 in 4 people having more sex dreams than their partner felt guilty, the truth is, there’s nothing to worry about.
Commenting on the study, The Sleep Judge said: “There’s no need for guilt or embarrassment about the sex dreams you and many others are having.”
Out of all the respondents, 54% were women, 45% were men and less than 1% identified with a non-binary gender.
So the conclusion is that sex dreams are common, whether it’s about a stranger, ex or even celebrity, it happens to everyone.
