Meaning and analysis of erotic dreams about cheating


The psychologist's analysis

> Key symbols:
- The beach: a place of wellbeing and femininity.
- The policemen and police station: the forbidden.
- The President: a substitute for authority.
- The sand: her femininity.
> Meaning: I can't help but notice that Helen is afraid of being "arrested". When she starts her story, she says: "I hope I'm not going to be sent to prison". Her dream associates sexuality with something that's forbidden or a forced act. Her husband is represented twice: in the guise of the president, who decides whether or not they go any further, and in the form of her dominating husband who watches but doesn't react. In real life, Helen is probably quite passive when it comes to her sex life since sex only seems to happen when there are constraints in place.
> What can she do? She must realize that this dream is part of a therapeutic process. She wants to make personal changes in her life. The dream demonstrates this in the part where she wants to get the sand off in order to be herself, to be more active and more of a decision-maker. She needs to ask herself some questions: is she happy with her husband? Although her dream doesn't indicate a desire for adultery, it does represent her need to retake control so she can stop suffering emotionally.
