What your sexy dreams really mean?

Published 06/25/2012 by Sensi Boutique

Aside from being a naughty bedtime treat, your sizzling visions give  a fascinating peek into your psyche. At some point, we’ve all gotten lucky in dreamland. Whether your racy reverie is red hot(bedding Josh Hartnett) or just strange (knocking boots with the guy who signs your paycheck), there’s a reason why it popped into your head. “

Sexy dreams reveal your desires and anxieties,” says Gillian Holloway, PhD, author of Erotic Dreams.“Your subconscious uses these raw, lustful situations to sort out emotions you may not be confronting in waking life.” Sure, maybe you already know dreams serve as a portal to your psyche, but you might not realize how obscure their implications can be. In fact, your dirtiest scenes often aren’t about sex at all.

 

Oh, and those “innocent” imaginings where you’re flying in the sky or brushing your hair? Loaded with sexual meaning. While everyone’s nocturnal fantasies and day-to-day issues vary, Cosmo asked dream experts to shed light on the most common sexy shut-eye musings. Get the scoop before bed tonight.

DECODING YOUR SEX DREAMS

Getting Passionate with a Wacky Partner

A dream where you’re scorching the sheets with your boss or best buddy? Yikes. Although you may assume this scandalous vision means you harbor hot-and-heavy feelings, the actual implications are generally PG. “You probably admire a quality that person possesses and want to develop it within yourself,” explains Patricia Garfield, PhD, author of Creative Dreaming. Maybe you crave the head honcho’s success or wish you had your friend’s confidence.

On lucky nights, a Hollywood hottie, like Patrick Dempsey, might make a guest appearance. While celeb sex dreams could just be mental candy your brain has cooked up for fun, there’s probably more to it. “To singles, it’s a reminder that amazing prospects are out there, and it also clues you in to the kind of man you want,” says Garfield.

If you’re already one half of a twosome, it may point to a yearning for a trait your guy lacks or — if you’re blissfully content — affirm you’ve scored with a star-quality man. In this case, you’ve found your McDreamy.

No Place to Get Busy

You’re on a hunt for a place to have sex with your man, but problems arise that make hooking up impossible. “This suggests a loss of intimacy between you and him,” explains Holloway. “Women tend to have this dream before or after a breakup.” Although you’ve struggled to make it work, something — like mismatched goals — has prevented it.

However, if you and your man are happily coupled, the dream may indicate that there’s an obstacle you’re trying to overcome — maybe it’s a long-distance issue or even just that you’re unsure what the future holds.

Having Sex for All  to See

Right in the middle of a XXX romp, you suddenly realize you’re onstage or in a roomful of people…with all eyes on you. “If the crowd makes you self-conscious, you could be worried that people are gossiping about your relationship,” says Holloway. Think about it: Are you afraid your pals don’t like him? Did  you start dating while he was still with someone else? On the other  hand, should being in the spotlight feel deliciously naughty, it means  you have a hankering to flaunt your sizzling sex life to the world.

Cheating  on Your Man

It’s pretty unsettling to imagine getting busy  behind your guy’s back. “You usually dream of sleeping with someone else  soon after taking a major relationship step, like getting engaged,”  says Holloway. “Any uneasiness about making such a huge life change can  manifest in your dreams.” It doesn’t mean you have regrets; you’re just  experiencing normal concerns, like that you’re missing out on other  potential mates or you’ll one day discover he’s not right for you.

On the flip side: “If your man’s the unfaithful one, ask yourself if  you’re resenting him for some reason,” suggests Holloway. “This dream  can expose feelings of emotional abandonment, like maybe he’s working a  lot or you’re more serious about your bond than he is.”

DECIPHERING SUBLIMINAL SEX MESSAGES

Flying Through the Sky

You’ve had a mind-blowing booty session recently, right? That would explain why you’re soaring in your sleep. “The freewheeling rush you get from whizzing through the air could be a mental celebration of great sex,” explains Garfield. “The thrilling sensations in the dream are similar to the high you experience when you climax.” If you haven’t had a hot hookup lately, the aerial illusions may be related to an intense romantic encounter, like going out with a guy you really like or hearing the L word from your beau for the first time.

A  Man Holding a Phallic Object Appears

Okay, if you dream of a guy with a baseball bat in hand or a log hoisted under his arm, heads up. “It means there’s a man in your life whom you’re attracted to, but either you’re not fully aware of your feelings or you don’t want to admit you’re into him,” says Holloway. The object of your affection may be someone who is totally not your type or an off-limits guy, like your man’s best bud. And just so you know, the guy you’re secretly lusting after may not necessarily be the hose-wielding hottie in your reverie.

An Animal  Encounter

When a stallion makes a late-night appearance, it suggests you’re getting in touch with your wild side. “Galloping on a horse symbolizes that you feel alive, liberated, and in control sexually,” says Holloway. The rhythm and speed of riding feels similar to the steady tempo of sex (as does any rhythmic motion, from swinging to climbing stairs, notes Garfield), and being atop a huge, powerful animal echoes the exhilaration of being with a man.

Not all animal-related scenarios are positive though. If scaly reptiles give you the heebie-jeebies, then a snake nightmare (hello, talk about phallic!) points to worries you have, possibly about sex, according to Gayle Delaney, PhD, author of All About Dreams. “Also, most people connect snakes with being sneaky,” adds Garfield. “This dream could signal you’ve subconsciously picked up on the fact that a guy you’ve been seeing is using you for sex or hiding something about his sexual past.” Call it intuition…in fantasy form.

You  Suddenly Have Superlong Locks

Envisioning a Rapunzel-like mane while mid-REM serves as a carnal wake-up call — you have been putting sex on the back burner and are ready to devote due energy to satisfying your erotic drive. “Long hair represents sensuality and femininity, encouraging you to let your natural impulses rule,” says Holloway. So stop snoozing on your sex life and seek out the kind of action you’ve only, uh, dreamed of.

I fully belive that most women are smart enough to understand that it only takes one time to either get pregnant or worse get an STD. My advice has always been to be safe not sorry. Unless we get to a point in life that our smart phone app can scan someone to see if they have a disease, and put a barrier around your body that prevents unplanned babies PLEASE people use protection!!!!!!!

Everyone is doing it!

Your Cell Phone Might Soon Be Able To Detect STDs

Published 05/29/2012 by Sensi Boutique

Now if this story is actually true , which im sure it just has to be health insurances are going to be out raged. Now im sure a prego testing app is on its way right behind this jucy app.

From SMS to STD–is there anything smart phones won’t be able to do?

Doctors and researchers in the UK are working on a chip that will detect  whether or not you have a sexually transmitted disease. Much like a home  pregnancy kit, users will need to urinate on a chip which detects disease. They  then will plug it into their cell phone or computer and within a matter of  minutes be able to read if they have any STDs (as well as what kind).

(See a photographic history of the cell phone.)

The Guardian reports that the project was inspired as a way to halt  the increasing number of young people in the UK who are contracting STDs–the  most common age of those contracting STDs is between 19 and 23. And because  young often equates with tech-savvy, researchers believe that this technology  will lead to more (and earlier!) detection for people who may be too nervous to  head to the doctor.

(See other amazing health gadgets.)

So if you have a fear of the doctor (or, more likely, a fear of the doctor  giving you bad news) you might soon have a quick and private way of finding out  if you’re healthy.

Though, you might want to sanitize your phone afterwards. (via the Guardian)

Top 10 Sexy Date Movies

Published 03/09/2012 by Sensi Boutique

Tonight being a typical date night for most I thought it would be fitting to come up with the top 10 date night movies, I am sure I’ll miss a few so please let me know about any other date worthy movies to check out.

No.10 Dangerous Liaisons

Seduction, betrayal and more seduction are the stars in this period piece  starring Glenn  Close, John  Malkovich and Michelle  Pfeiffer. The Marquise de Merteuil (Close) asks her partner in deceit  Vicomte de Valmont (Malkovich) to seduce a young woman to get back at a former  lover. However, Valmont has his wants and desires set on the sweet and tender  Madame de Tourvel (Pfeiffer). Dangerous Liaisons has a heat and passion  that simmers just underneath powdered wigs, accents and corsets. The innocent  are taught to seduce, the guilty to lie and lives hang in the balance of a duel. Dangerous Liaisons is a classic and was reimagined as Sarah  Michelle Gellar’s Cruel Intentions (also sexy and featuring one of  our favorite chick  kissing scenes).

No.9 Belle Epoque

Take Spain, war, a handsome young soldier, and four nubile and beautiful sisters  and you have this foreign film classic. Fernando, a young soldier struggling  with the impending civil war of his Spanish homeland, finds himself in the bed  of four sisters: a lovelorn widow, a lesbian who is aroused by cross-dressing, a  vapid socialite, and an innocent beauty. As Fernando finds heartbreak and  disappointment with each sexual encounter, the girls’ father gives the soldier  hope about romance (even after Fernando has slept with his daughters).

No.8 Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

Antonio  Banderas — that’s all your girlfriend needs to know. The epitome of Latin  lovers stars as a recently released mental patient who finds himself obsessed  with an actress fallen on hard times. Sex, damaged psyches, childhood abuse, and  addiction come together in one of the few films that make Stockholm syndrome  lusty and hot. Staying true to its title, the actress, Marina, is kidnapped by  Banderas who keeps her tied up and tied down to ensure her inevitable falling in  love with him. At a point in the end, she begs him to leave her bound so she  cannot leave him. Talk about bondage!

No.7 Laurel Canyon

Christian  Bale and Kate Beckinsale star as a newly engaged couple living in Los Angeles pursuing  their careers. Sam (Bale) is a psychiatrist and Alex (Beckinsale) is a doctor.  The couple ends up staying with Sam’s mother, a record producer and free spirit  who ends up trying to create an album while partying hard. While Bale’s  character is stressed by his wild mother, his wife is drawn into her lifestyle. Laurel Canyon focuses on relationships trying to grow in mutual proximity  without suffering from one another. It also brings in some heated sexual moments  that normally never happen (Alex, Jane and her boyfriend almost have a  threesome), but it does take a realistic look at temptation and the challenge of  defining what type of love we really want.

 

No.6 Y Tu Mama Tambien

Hot doesn’t begin to describe this Mexican cinematic excursion into sex,  friendship and self-discovery. Two friends, after having very honest and  realistic sex with their girlfriends, head on a road trip. During their  vacation, they meet a slightly older woman who is open about making love, having  sex and simply screwing for the sake of screwing. International stars Gael  Garcia Berna, Diego Luna and Maribel  Verdú have no issue portraying naked characters (both figuratively and  literally) in terms and scenes that will provoke discussion and arousal. If this  film doesn’t make a couple want to have sex, they need to check their pulse

 

No.5 The Fabulous Baker Boys

The Bridges brothers and Michelle  Pfeiffer give a critically acclaimed performance as two brothers who play as  lounge lizards in Seattle. They are joined by a beautiful blonde (Pfeiffer) who  sings and draws in audiences while building tension between the brothers. What  else can you expect whenever two guys are around a hot girl? Even the Baker boys  can’t put their blood before their desires and the duo falls apart. The late ‘80s classic showcases how sexuality can simmer and grow from nothing more than  a song well-sung by a beautiful woman. The Fabulous Baker Boys was  nominated for four Academy Awards.

No.4 Suspiria

Murder and mystery find their way into this Dario Argento horror film. A  young student travels to a musical academy in Germany only to discover violence,  death and supernatural evil lurking in the background. Blind pianists, maggots  and witches end up making Suspira a film of tense eroticism that will  leave you and your sweetheart tightly wrapped around one another. Keep in mind  that this film is known for its violence and it put the famed Italian director  Argento on the map.

 

No.3 Eyes Wide Shut

Tom  Cruise and Nicole  Kidman portray a well-to-do married couple who face seduction, lies, secret  societies, and murder in this odd but heated film. Bill (Cruise) must fend off  sexual advances during parties, erotic fantasies and difficult discoveries about  his wife (Kidman.) Eyes Wide Shut portrays sex and its attending issues  of infidelity, deviant desires and orgies. This film is sure to stir up want in  a couple with masked sex, a simmering soundtrack and Tom Cruise jumping bones  and not couches.

 

No.2 Mr. & Mrs. Smith

This is the movie that started Brangelina and ended Brad and Jennifer. John  (Brad  Pitt) and Jane (Angelina  Jolie) are a couple suffering from marital boredom. Their cooling love life  stems from having to deceive each other into think they’re conventional  suburbanites when, in reality, they are both master assassins. Mr. & Mrs.  Smith takes this ultra hot and stylish couple on an adventure of both  marital exploration and contract killing as they trade attempts on each others’  lives… until they have hot sex in a decimated kitchen. It’s a thrill ride with  some real meat about relationships and after seeing Brangelina shooting and  sweaty, you two will find your own ways to disarm and disrobe each other.

 

No.1 Dirty Dancing

The No. 1 date movie that leads to sex is the ‘80s classic that featured  great dancing, acting and a timeless soundtrack. Jennifer Grey is Frances “Baby” Houseman, a New York socialite who meets dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick  Swayze) and finds self-discovery and her own sexuality. The two must battle  classicism, accusations and forbidden love against the backdrop of sultry dance  lessons. Featuring smooth moves by Swayze and Grey and the famous line “Nobody  puts Baby in a corner,” Dirty Dancing taught a generation about dancing,  following one’s heart and reminded us just how cool the ‘60s were. Your  girlfriend will be singing about how she’s had the time of your life by the  movie’s credits and you’ll find a renewed sense of love and fun at the end of  the date.
