Dreams About Sex and Passion
SEX WITH MY BOSS—THE DREAM:Me, my boss, a colleague were at a conference. My boss and I were in a discussion when the colleague interrupts, so my boss sends them to do some work while we continue. The discussion ends with him giving me a hug, which leads to a passionate kiss and sleeping in each others’ arms. He would have gone to full sex but we decided that since we had no protection, it was sensible not to on this occasion. We awaken in each others’ arms as the colleague reenters the room, which woke me from my sleep and dream.FELT HOW: Perplexed.MAIN LIFE ISSUES: Money; never seem to have enough for extras and treats.STORY LINE: Someone collaborates with another who is important to them financially, which results in closeness, though interrupted.
