Sex dreams are very common. The symbolic meaning may differ greatly based on the context of that dream. It is good to consider the type of sex, and how it is being done, and with who you are involved. Using the Bible, the inspired word of God, we can define the meaning of the sexual symbolisms in a dream.

Sex is more spiritual than it is physical. Having sex in a dream doesn’t mean you are having sex literally, rather it means most often you are being defiled. God may reveal sexual dreams to show us the state of our hearts, our true selves.

“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.”

(Hebrews 13:4, ESV)

I remember God revealing to me dreams about other people. In those dreams, those people were having sex or being taken advantage of sexually. At first, I thought of the symbolism literally, however, God prompted me to dig into His word and realized the symbolism of sexual dreams meant “defilement.”

Types of sex dreams and their interpretation.

1. Having sex with a stranger (spiritual husbands and spiritual wives sex dreams)

The key thing to consider is how the symbolism is used in such a context. If the stranger is forcing you into the act, then you have to pay close attention to this dream. It might symbolize a demonic entity that is trying to take advantage of you. They achieve this by paralyzing you, rendering you defenseless. The male sex demon is called an incubus while the female sex demon is called a succubus.

Most often we wake up very wet and assume it was just a wet dream. However, the truth is that we were making love to demonic entities. I don’t believe in wet dreams, it just a lie they thought you in schools. We have all heard of spiritual husbands and spiritual wives. These are the same entities that present themselves in our dreams.

They can put on a false identity, of someone familiar to you, probably your boyfriend or girlfriend.

If you have been having such dreams you should pray against it and plead the blood of Jesus Christ upon your life. Do the same every time you go to bed.

When I was a porn addict, I used to experience such evil dreams. However, when God delivered me, the whole thing stopped. We should all know that the act of sex is more spiritual than it is physical. Some of you have sired children with demons without your knowledge. That’s why you are having many relationship issues as these demonic entities claim you as their spouse and are very jealousy and can’t allow you to move with anyone.

2. Having sex with your boyfriend or girlfriend sex dreams meaning.

In interpreting this dream we have to take into consideration the context of such a dream and the state of our minds by the time we were about to sleep. 

If you had been thinking about him or her, then it is possible to fantasize about the two of you making love. The dream is a consequence of your thought on your mind.

But if you have never thought of each other sexually or in that manner, then the symbolism might mean something different. We all know that the Bible doesn’t approve of fornication. This dream may be warning us to be watchful as the enemy seeks to tempt us to fornicate. It may also mean we should be more watchful of our thoughts and how we are relating in our relationship.

It may also symbolize a demonic entity in the shadows of your lover. That is, the entity takes their appearance to easily seduce you to make love with him in the dream.

3. Having sex with your father dream interpretation.

The symbolism of a father always represents a spiritual authority over our life, as they are the head of the family. Therefore, we need to be very careful while interpreting such a dream based on its context.

a) If your father is forcing you into the sexual act.

The Bible condemns the sexual union between a father and a daughter.

“You shall not uncover the nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, for their nakedness is your nakedness.”

(Leviticus 18:10, ESV)

“You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law; she is your son’s wife; you shall not uncover her nakedness.”

(Leviticus 18:15, ESV)

The dream may indicate there is perversion in the family and you need to pray about it. If your father is not born again, then you should pray for him as he might be perverted.

b) Your father breaking your virginity in a dream meaning.

 Your virginity is reserved for no one else but your future husband and him alone. The symbolism indicates great marital difficulties as you have made a covenant with your father through the shedding of blood, which has the power to bind you together as one. Sex is used to consummate a marriage, cleaving the two to becoming one flesh.

This is the reason why most ladies are still in their father’s house and have never found a life partner, and if they do the marriage doesn’t last, they always end up divorced and back to their father’s house, it’s a cycle. The covenant they made with their father sexually and unaware opposes those unions. If your father practices witchcraft, then he might have done so to put you under his authority and to gain more power.

God may be revealing to you what conspired, and the reason why you have been having marital difficulties to pray about it to be delivered in Jesus’ name.

c) Having an intimate sexual act with your father.

In this case, he doesn’t force you, you consent to it. It means you are going to have a renewed relationship with him, probably if you had previous differences. It is not an evil dream for God has called us to the ministry of reconciliation. (II Corinthians 5:18-19).


4) Having sex with your mother in a dream.

A mother represents a caring and nurturing character in your life as she carried you in her womb for nine months and she has nurtured you this far.

a) Your mother forcing you to have sex, or you forcing her into the act.

This act is greatly condemned in the scriptures.

“You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father, which is the nakedness of your mother; she is your mother, you shall not uncover her nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife; it is your father’s nakedness.”

(Leviticus 18:7-8, ESV)

This is an evil dream and you should pray to cancel it.

b) Having very intimate sex with your mother.

 The symbolism in this context means that you are going to reconcile with her if you had previous issues, and also you are going to have a better and strong relationship and friendship with her.


5. Having sex with your brother or sister.

Your brother or sister is the closest person you have in your life. The person you have spent your childhood together. We should also consider the context from which the dream is drawn.

a) Raping your sister or tricking her to have sex with you.

“You shall not uncover the nakedness of your sister, your father’s daughter, or your mother’s daughter, whether brought up in the family or another home.”

(Leviticus 18:9, ESV)

“You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, brought up in your father’s family since she is your sister.”

(Leviticus 18:11)

It may mean there is a perverted spirit operating in your heart and you need to pray about it and repent to be cleansed by the blood of Jesus.

If you having been entertaining such thoughts or probably you have not been relating with your sister properly sexually, then the dream is a warning for you to seek to have a renewed mind and start relating with her properly. It is only a perverse man who can lay with his sister and defile her in that manner, hence dishonoring himself.

If you are having an intimate sexual dream with your brother or sister, then it means that just as the sexual act is intimate, your renewed relationship will be so too. Sex in this dream represents intimacy and renewed healthy bonding.

6. Having sex with your cousin and other family members. 

Considering the context, the dream might be evil or have a significant meaning based on the following scriptures.

“None of you shall approach any one of his close relatives to uncover nakedness. I am the Lord.”

(Leviticus 18:6)

“You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, and you shall not take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter to uncover her nakedness; they are relatives; it is depravity.”

(Leviticus 18:17)

The dream may also indicate renewed family unions. However, you need to pray against such dreams as they are most often evil.

7. Having sex with an angel dream interpretation.

Angels are appointed as ministering spirits to those who are of the seed of Abraham by faith and not flesh (Hebrews 1:14). They can take the form of humans. In the Bible, we see the sons of God who defiled themselves with the daughters of men.

“The sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose.”

(Genesis 6:2)

From this, we know that angels can be tempted and they also have desires. This is true as they lusted after the mortal women.

Having sex with an angel symbolizes the highest form of perversion that has ever existed since the beginning of time. It is a forbidden relation. Probably you are being seduced into having fellowship with the devil for he turns himself an angel of light. You are also being initiated in cultism and demonic worship or even witchcraft.

8. Lesbian and homosexual sex in a dream.

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.”

(Leviticus 18:22)

The Lord detests such acts as they are perverse. God created sex to be a special gift of marriage between a man and woman, and not a man and another man or a woman and another woman.

The symbolism in this dream may indicate that you are being initiated into witchcraft as this is what they do when transferring authority to family members. 

You need to pray against such dreams and plead the blood of Jesus that can set you free from every satanic yoke. [John 8:36]

9. Having sex with an animal dream interpretation (bestiality)

The Bible condemns bestiality as it is perverted and unnatural union. The beast can’t consent to the act, hence it’s rights are abused.

“And you shall not lie with any animal and so make yourself unclean with it, neither shall any woman give herself to an animal to lie with it: it is a perversion.”

(Leviticus 18:23)

This dream symbolizes initiation into witchcraft and satanism. It can also mean you are very perverted and you need to recheck your thoughts. It might also symbolize sin in your life that is detestable as the act of bestiality. Pray and repent of your sins to receive redemption for your soul.

10. A dog licking your private parts in a dream.

When you see a dog chasing you in a dream, and in the next scene it licks your private parts, then you need to be very prayerful because you are being defiled.

The dog is symbolic. It represents the lustful men who have been chasing after your body to fornicate with you. Drawing the symbolism from the mating behavior of dogs, we know that a female dog may be mated by over twenty dogs in a day. The men you are fornicating with are symbolized as “dogs”. This dream may be reflecting your true self especially if you have been living a life of fornication.

“Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”

(Revelation 22:15)

Just as the act of dogs licking your private parts is disgusting for you to even think of, your lifestyle of fornication is as detestable before God as that act of dogs licking your private parts. God is calling you to rependence. You need to stop fornicating and seek to be freed through the blood of Jesus Christ. God can deliver you if only you let Him.

11. Having sex with your husband or wife in a dream.

It is wise to interpret this dream based on your feeling in the dream and its context. The dream may indicate your desire to be with your partner especially if they have recently traveled or are living in a distant city.

It may also indicate your desire for more sex if you are not satisfied sexually by your partner. In this case, you should talk to your spouse about it and your deep desires.

“Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”

(I Corinthians 7:5)

It may symbolize your appreciation of the intimate sexual relation you are having with your spouse. Since in the physical you greatly enjoy the sex, your mind may end up bringing it up in your dreams as sweet memories. This is a good and healthy dream. Such dreams should not be ignored at all.

How to be delivered from evil sexual dreams.

You must be born again by receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior.

“Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart, one believes and is justified, and with the mouth, one confesses and is saved.”

(Romans 10:9-10)

Now that you are born again ask God to free you.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

(II Corinthians 3:17)

“So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

John 8:36

God can give you the power to overcome any struggle and evil power through the blood of Jesus Christ His Son.

“I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall hurt you.”

(Luke 10:19, ESV)
