Dreaming of making love is often a pleasant experience, but when you wake up you may be somewhat disconcerted; this depends above all on the identity of your sexual partner in the dream: it can be someone you are really attracted to; or maybe someone you don’t like at all in real life. Maybe he is a friend of yours, or someone of the same sex as you, and it amazes and upsets you. You reach the maximum disturbance when you dream of having sex with a relative or family member, or dreams of violent and extreme content, which in all probability when you wake up will deeply disgust you.
If you dream of making love with someone, it does not mean that the dream is necessarily the fulfillment of a desire; it does not mean that you are attracted, perhaps unconsciously, to that person. There are also other, more symbolic meanings. It is also necessary to evaluate, in addition to the partner, the sensations experienced in the dream (was it pleasant or not?) And the context in which it takes place.
