Sexual Fantasies - What Do They Mean?
Erotic fantasies are as common as daydreaming. Imagining ourselves in a hot tryst with a (several) flight attendant(s), being desired by strangers at a sex party, doing unspeakable things with a celebrity crush, being punished by a cruel owner or getting paid for sexual acts we’d never do in real life are among the most common sexual fantasies people describe when allowed to explore them freely. For many of us, our fantasies are the one aspect of our lives we have total control over, so whether we are the protagonist or the recipient – we are in control of what happens and how, thus providing the perfect antidote to life’s daily ups and downs. Sexual fantasies needn’t be elaborate nor extensive. They can be a brief encounter, or a longing for a specific act, object or interpersonal dynamic. They can come in the form of images, sounds, emotions or sensations, but what makes them compelling is the fact they arouse our senses and demand our attention.
