What Your Girl-On-Girl Sex Dream *Really* Means About Your Sexuality

So about last night... Things were getting hot and heavy, and you were 100 percent into it. Sadly, you woke up to realize that you were actually just making out with your pillow, and that your steamy hookup was just a dream. (Did you know you can orgasm from a sex dream?) Then you realize the dream was about a woman—and whether it was Megan Fox, your hot barista, or a high school friend, there were definitely no dudes present at the No Pants Party.

Guess what? It doesn't mean you're a lesbian, or even bisexual. It means you're a human being.

You're definitely not alone in having sex dreams; in one study, men and women reported that about eight percent of their dreams were sexual. You're not alone in having girl-on-girl sex dreams either—Shape sexpert Dr. Logan Levkoff even admits to having had one about Christie Brinkley in fourth grade. But don't let this sex dream send you off into an existential sexuality crisis. (Psst... Do you know what your dreams can reveal about your identity?)

Dr. Levkoff explains exactly why you should just go with the flow: You can think women are sexy and attractive (because, hey, we're magestic freaking creatures, am I right?), but that doesn't necessarily mean you want to have a relationship (sexual or serious) with a woman. A fantasy is exactly that: just a fantasy, says Dr. Levkoff. It's a way to experiment with roles, personalities, and experiences we may not actually want to try out in real life. (These five fantasies are super common ones.)

The catch: Do you find yourself wanting a sexual relationship with a woman outside of dreamland too? Then this dream may not just be a dream. In the end, it's up to you to decide whether your concious feelings signal something that your unconcious self is totally on board with. Either way, enjoy your overnight Os, and if you decide you want to re-create one in real life? Go for it.
