Playing Are Sex Dreams Normal?

The Doctors weigh in on a viewer question about whether having a sex dream about your boss or a co-worker is normal.

She says that a sex dream about a boss or a co-worker could mean that you simply admire a trait or quality about them. She also says that dreaming about an ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend does not necessarily mean you want to be with that person again, noting that often times past memories are recalled and played out in our dreams

Dr. Judy goes on to explain that often dreams are a result of random neurons firing in your brain and they can be all over the place.
