Jane Teresa Anderson, who is a trained scientist and also a published author of books about dream interpretation sent us an EXCELLENT contribution to this post; “Why Do We Often Dream of Sex and Action?”
I decided to share it with you as an new entry instead of merely a comment.
Thank you Jane Teresa for your input, patience and wisdom.

Yes, itâ€™s true, the areas of the brain most active during dreaming are the areas involved in sensing and processing emotions, instincts, drives (such as sex, which is also instinctual and emotional), as well as the areas of the brain that normally, while we are awake, sense and process what we see, hear, smell, touch and taste.
The reasoning part of the brain is pretty much switched off during dreaming! You only have to look at your dreams to realise this is true. Logic has little place in the dramas dreams weave.
In simple terms, the right brain is active and the left brain is sleepy during dreaming.
Hereâ€™s the good bit:
Dreams - once interpreted - give you the opportunity to understand how your unconscious mind is programmed. This is important because itâ€™s your unconscious mind thatâ€™s in control of how your life turns out . Your fears, whether you know about them or not, dictate how you act in life no matter how much you think your reasoning brain is in control.
Your deepest beliefs about life, the ones that affect how you go about your life and what happens in your life as a result, are anchored in your emotions. These beliefs are mostly unconscious, and because your unconscious mind is a more powerful driving force than you conscious mind, it â€˜winsâ€™.
So - isnâ€™t it wonderful that dreams allow you to observe the emotions and beliefs that are really in the driving seat of your life? Knowledge is power - once you know about your unconscious patterns they can be changed.
Yes, weâ€™re reasoning, logical creatures, and this distinguishes us from non-human animals. Yes, we can put a cap on our emotions and drives while we are awake. But Iâ€™d argue that being able to remember and interpret our dreams is also what distinguishes us from non-human animals, and it is this ability that enables us to be super-human: to evaluate our unconscious patterns and beliefs and change them so that we truly master our lives and the way we respond to the world.
Oh - you want to know more about sex dreams?
What is the personality of your dream sex partner? Choose three words to describe his or her personality. If the sex is good, you may be unconsciously absorbing these traits into your life. If the sex is not so good, the same applies but you may not be too happy about this fact. However, every dream is unique and itâ€™s the rest of your dream storyline that is the key to the interpretation.
Hope this helps,
