The answer depends entirely on the dream, and the dreamer. Whether you are heterosexual or LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender), sexual dreams of this nature have varied meanings. For example, sometimes they may represent wish fulfillment, repressed desires, or a waking life desire for companionship, love, or sexual gratification. Other times, they may symbolize something else, and have nothing directly to do with sexual feelings, preference, or orientation in waking life.
- No matter what your sexual orientation—dreaming of sex isn’t always about sex. Dreams about sex often symbolize either the merging of different aspects within yourself, or incorporating aspects of your dream sex partner into your psyche. Consider what it is that you love, admire, or respect about your dream partner to get an idea of what you are merging with or incorporating into your own personality. Usually, sex in dreams is considered positive, so you can look for the positive and empowering qualities in your dream lovers that you identify with.
- If you identify as Heterosexual
If you identify as heterosexual, dreaming that you are having LGBT sex does not mean you are LGBT or that you have LGBT desires in waking life. These dreams may suggest that you are learning to love and accept all your masculine and feminine energies, or that you are incorporating your dream partner’s qualities into your own personality and psyche. Sometimes, dreaming that you are having sex with a same-sex partner may symbolize desiring more closeness and deeper understanding amongst your own gender. Other times, dreams like these can allow you to freely and safely explore aspects of your sexuality that you may feel reserved about acting out in waking life.

- Androgynous and Asexual Dream Characters
Androgynous dream characters may symbolize a successful integration of masculine and feminine energy or characteristics. They may also symbolize vacillating between stereotyped gender roles in waking life (such as a female soldier who is also a mother, or a male nanny who trains for martial arts competitions).
- Asexual dream characters may represent a low sex drive, impotence, or frigidity. They also may represent a lack of sexual activity by choice, or not finding a suitable lover in waking life.
- Drag queen. (A downer to be around due to constant drama or a diva attitude.)
- Bi may be a pun on “bye,” “buy”or “by.”
- Bi may represent dualities, polarities or contradictions.
- Rainbows are a symbol of diversity among the LGBT community. It has historically represented hope, optimism, fulfillment, magic, treasure, blessings and a bridge to the spiritual realm.
- Same sex ejaculation or orgasm may be a metaphor for “coming out.” (Discovering or disclosing aspects of yourself that were previously unknown or repressed).
- How do I feel in the dream? Do I have the same sexual feelings in waking life as I do in this dream, or are they different?
- What are my dream lover’s best qualities? How do I want to be more like that in my life?
