Have you ever had a dream where you're having hot sex with Ryan Gosling and another woman in front of your gynecologist and spontaneously deliver a kitten? Maybe that's just me, and I don't even like cats. I'm Dr. Logan Levkoff, and this is what you need to know about your sex dreams during pregnancy. I have no doubt that many of you have had some seriously steamy and simultaneously strange sex dreams recently. We all get them, but sometimes they're even more common when we're pregnant. You're not going crazy. You're human. These fantasies are our way of safely exploring the wild things that we may never do in our real lives. So while our bodies are changing dramatically and all of that extra blood flow has settled in our vulvas and around our vaginas, we may be extra desirous in our fantasy lives, but there's another aspect to these sex dreams that's even more exciting. Some women notice that they can have orgasms in their sleep during this time due to all of that heightened genital sensitivity. So, don't read too much into these dreams. Just lay back and enjoy them.
