Sex dreams can be incredibly hot — or leave you waking up in a panic, depending on the context. Some nights, you may wake up confused and scared if your dream was about cheating, an ex, or past trauma. On a better night, you may wake up on top of the world after a sex dream about Rihanna. But according to clinical psychologist and sleep expert Michael Breussex dreams of all kinds are perfectly normal and even healthy. While Breus says most people have fewer sexual dreams after puberty, they don't end there altogether. In fact, sex therapist Holly Richmond says that about 80 percent of her clients talk to her about their erotic dreams. You may be one of those people who doesn't dream much ; on the other hand, you may be lucky enough to experience lucid dreaming. For many of us, the pandemic has even affected our dreams.
