Security & Intimacy
In my dream I am making love to a man, who’s wearing a ski mask. He’s not wearing anything else.
Symbolism (from dreammoods.com):
Sex: …To dream about sex refers to the integration and merging of contrasting aspects of yourself. It represents psychological completion. You need to be more receptive and incorporate aspects of your dream sex partner into your own character. Consider the nature of the love-making. Was it passionate? Was it slow? Was it wild? The sex act parallels aspects of yourself that you wish to express. A more direct interpretation of the dream, may be your libido’s way of telling you that it has been too long since you have had sex. It may indicate repressed sexual desires and your needs for physical and emotional love.
…If you dream that you are having sex with a stranger, then it represents uncertainty about what is ahead. Alternatively, the dream allows you to experiment freely without having any hang ups, emotional baggage or preconceived notions associated with a person you would know. In such a scenario, you are able to let loose and express your desires, passions and emotions.
Mask: To see someone wearing a mask in your dream denotes that you are struggling against deceit, falsehood, and jealousy.
In my dream, my partner was very gentle to me and the nature of our sex was very passionate. I guess I am telling myself that I really want to be a softer person to other people in my life, since this is a very attractive trait to have and is always nice to see in other people as well. I think I didn’t know who the identity of my partner was, because I feel sometimes it is easier to open up to a complete stranger than to someone you know. I feel like I can fully express myself to this person, because I don’t know who they are but I know that they are treating me well (which I find is more important than knowing their identity sometimes). I feel like when you remove labels from people you can really get to know what kind of individual they are by how they treat you.
My partner is wearing a mask, because I do feel like I am struggling with deceit when I am getting to know someone intimately – I feel like I am usually trying to filter out if they are trying to trick me into something or using me as a means for something else. In the context of this dream, however, the mask acts as a ‘cover’ which hides things that are not important about them (physical appearance, racial background, etc.) and lets me focus on the things that are important (manners, personality, etc). This dream is representing my desire to have more real, intimate connections with people, which I feel I really need more of.
