Just like men, women can have orgasms during dreams.
Did you think only men experience this phenomenon? Not true, says Barbara Bartlik, MD, a psychiatrist and sex therapist in New York. Warning, further reading may produce blushing: "Women have orgasms during their sleep, just as men do," she says. "These orgasms often accompany erotic dreams, but they also may occur during dreams of a nonerotic nature." When women dream, she says, it's not uncommon for their genitals to become engorged and lubricated. "This occurs during REM sleep, which happens several times during the night," she says. A similar thing happens to men. "Men get erections during REM sleep, whether or not the man is having an erotic dream."
As shocking as it may sound to some, this dream is pretty common, says Dr. Herbenick. “Many women dream about having sex with another woman at some point in their lives, even if, in waking life, they're excited only by men,” she says. So why does it happen? “Well, for one, American culture has been a bit obsessed with the idea of two women making out for some years now,” she says. (Think: Girls Gone Wild.) But when a heterosexual woman suddenly has a same-sex dream, it’s most likely the slumbering mind’s expression of a strong female friendship. “Same-sex sex dreams can also be sparked by the emotional closeness that many women have with their best friends,” she adds. “In dreams, sometimes this closeness may take on a different level but it is unlikely to mean anything about your sexual orientation, unless you also—in waking life—find that you are interested in women.”
