DREAM DICTIONARY - Sex :Sex will often link to sexual feelings. It may just be an expression of fantasies so if you wake up feeling aroused its symbolic of those immediate urges. that's especially the case if you are not able to satisfy your sexual urges.
Sex may also be linked to sexual relationships and your thoughts about these. Maybe you partner wants to try something that you feel uncomfortable with. Perhaps you have been thinking about how far to go with a new sex partner?
Sex is also a symbol of intimacy. Maybe you have been talking about feelings openly and honestly with someone? They showed no signs of restraining their feelings and revealed every little secret in their lives.
Sex in dreams can also simply represent something that you find very attractive - but not in a sexual way. Think of ways in which you used the phrase - 'I would really want to do that?' For instance your boss going on holiday is a very attractive sounding thought - because you can spend the week doing as little as possible.
In a similar way sex with someone may simply represent your admiration for someone. It may show that you would like your next sexual partner to be like that person. It just shows that you know what you like. So if you have sex with your best friends girlfriend then it could just mean that you wish for someone similar in your life. Its not a dream showing that you have inappropriate feelings.

EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : A dream of a very sexy woman flirting with the dreamer took place the day after the dreamer had become a "hot property" for his amazing computer skills. Several people had been "swarming around him," praising him endlessly. The sexy woman was a symbol of how he felt like a "hot sex bomb" with people interested in him.
Example dream : A dream where the woman is attracted to the dreamer was linked to the dreamers thoughts about a woman. At first he felt a bit defensive because she was asking him some very direct questions - but he had started to realise that she was very interested (attracted) in some ideas that he had. So the dreams meaning dealt with this theme of "attracted" and linked to this specific thought process "I thought she believed that my ideas were nonsense and unscientific but I actually think she is attracted to these ideas now and is a big fan".
Example dream : Sex in one dream linked to a young student relationship with an older staff member. The older staff member burst into tears because of stress and the younger girl comforted her.

But the idiot went too far and eat too much." So the dream was about how the dreamer should behave with her husband and her feelings about letting him as he wished the previous night.
