"Men used to report many more sex dreams, twice as many as women, and we don't find that difference anymore," said study author Antonio Zadra, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Montreal."Either women are having them more, or they're more likely to report them.Either way, it's interesting."
According to Zadra, researchers have devoted very little attention to the study of sex dreams, even though they are extremely common.
In his study, Zadra looked at surveys of 109 women and 64 men who compiled diaries of their dreams for as long as a month.The total number of dreams topped 3,500.
The Canadian participants, aged 20-89, responded to advertisements about the survey.Researchers didn't gather data about their sexual orientations.
Zadra was to report his findings Thursday at the Associated Professional Sleep Societies annual meeting, in Minneapolis.
At least in the dream scenarios, that appears to be the case," Zadra said.
Still, there might be another explanation."It could be it's more difficult in REM sleep to attribute these kinds of affects and emotions to another character," Zadra said."Maybe it's easier for women."
Indeed, it's difficult for people to take part in some activities -- like reading -- during dreams, and powers of judgment often don't exist, Zadra said.He suspects this may be because part of the brain slumbers during dreaming.
People, meanwhile, weren't the only subjects of sexual fantasies.One woman reported being aroused by a giant plant which she found to be "extremely erotic," Zadra said.
Despite Freudian analysis and countless books about dream analysis, dreams remain a big mystery.Still, specialists figure that if you dream about a topic, it's something that occupies your waking thoughts too, Zadra said.
"If the sex dreams tend to involved unknown or fantasy characters, it is probably a reflection of your waking state, that your desires and fantasies are with strangers," Zadra said.
