Tell Me Your Wildest Dreams!
Every Wednesday I venture away from romantic/erotic fiction writing to interpret your dreams. Have a recurring or puzzling dream? Send it to and I'll try to shed some light on Wild Dreams Wednesday!

This Week's Wildest Dream:

No new dreams came in this week, so I thought I'd cover the end-all of laughed about and feared dreams: The "I showed up NAKED!" dream.

Dreams of being naked in some sort of public venue are quite common and no, they don't reveal some hidden desire to join a nudist colony! When you think of clothing, this represents the image we present in public, as well as a layer of protection and a shield of sorts to guard us from exposing our most vulnerable parts. An outside facade that allows us to be respectable and accepted.

Now let's consider losing these things in a dream. We show up to work, school, etc. without attire, meaning we are experiencing fears of being exposed or placed in a vulnerable, embarrassing, or generally awkward position. Your defenses have been breached, and people can "see right through" the shields you normally have in place in social situations.

Of course, this is all assuming the dream is the kind I hear most often, the We-Were-All-Mortified variety. However, I've had (and heard of) variations where we're walking around naked and nobody thinks twice about it. Or maybe YOU don't think twice about it. You might be making too much of something in your life that really doesn't affect others the way you fear it will (or more accurately, how they think of you). If you don't care about being naked in public, it shows a sense of self confidence.


Wild Dreams Wednesdays interpretation by romance author/editor Lisa Logan is meant to be used for education and entertainment purposes only. I hope you've found this week's post useful! Stay tuned until next Wednesday, when we again delve deep into our Wildest Dreams. Sleep Tight!
