Erotic Dream

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
"Oooh Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night."
Gary Wright"Dream Weaver"

The protagonist's sexual dreams about a friend or enemy causes them to reassess their relationship. Or not, just as long as they're having them.

See also Homoerotic Dream, Freud Was Right, and, if they were denying Unresolved Sexual Tension before, Dreaming the Truth.

No real life examples, please; we'd be here all day.

Examples of Erotic Dream include:

Anime and Manga

  • Neon Genesis Evangelion: Shinji has a particularly Mind Screw-ish dream (for the audience and himself), including erotic visions of Misato, Asuka, and Rei. Even when Shinji is dreaming of Asuka throwing herself at him, she still refers to him as "Baka-Shinji" (stupid Shinji). Baka-Shinji.
  • Naturally, Ayato in RahXephon has a similar erotic (although it's a bit more complicated than that) dream about Haruka
  • In one Code Geass side story, Kallen is woken from such a dream about Zero; she was talking in her sleep, but luckily for her, her friend thinks she was talking about being on medication.
  • Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann High School AU Guren Gakuenhen has Simon dreaming about Nia this way. Specifically, a naked Nia saying "Okay, Simon... let's gattai!" while in his house.
    • He wakes up and the last part turns out to be true.
  • Shiki is deliberately given an Erotic Dream by Arcueid in Tsukihime, as thanks for his assistance. Unfortunately, who he dreams about is the source of much grief for Shiki, since it winds up being about Arcueid. In the anime, the dream itself soon turns into a nightmare when Arcueid makes it clear she wants Shiki's blood (the manga and game went with the sex). In the visual novel, though, you can actually choose who you want the dream to be about.
    • Worth mentioning is that Shiki is awakened every morning by Hisui, one of the maids. It's apparently pretty clear what Shiki's dreaming about as he sleeps. (Unless he dreams about her)
    • Shirou in Fate/stay night gets one about Rin as well. Interestingly enough it's not in Rin's route. Except when she opens her eyes her eyes are different. When Rider takes off the visor and you see the same eyes it becomes clear it was Rider in the dream disguised as Rin.
    • It's inverted in Kagetsu Tohya, the Tsukihime side story. Len actually has an erotic dream about Shiki where he can do nothing but watch.
  • In Ranma ½, the titular character's subconscious must either hate him for getting his curse, or has way too much fun with it, as his erotic dreams are inevitably Catapult Nightmares due to technically being Homo Erotic Dreams:
    • Almost at the beginning of the manga, Ranma had a dream about a mountain-sized Kuno grasping him (in female form, naked) while volcanoes erupted and jet fighters bombed a city. The anime version merely had him (again, naked in female form) in a pool, with Kuno offering his suddenly very phallic wooden sword ("Grab onto this!"); upon refusing, "she" sank to a reef at the bottom of the pool, only to be surrounded by countless naked Kunos (and this was after he had Kuno repeating his declaration of love to male-Ranma, including at one point where they were both naked in the bath). Both times, he woke up screaming his head off.
    • After being knocked unconscious while trapped in a deserted island with Kuno (again,) female-Ranma dreamed about living there happily as the kendoist's wife, already with several children. Again, she woke up in absolute terror and slapped him silly at first sight.
    • Once, a dying man named Harumaki sent out his astral projection to haunt Ranma's dreams. The reason: seeing female-Ranma reminded him of his love, Gyoko. The result: Ranma would dream about being on a date with a (seemingly) handsome boy, only for him to turn into the wrinkly, bug-eyed old man as they leaned in for a kiss. The art implied that Ranma woke up screaming because the kiss had been consummated.
    • Akane herself experienced a unique dream once, when cursed to sleep endlessly by a magical incense burner. Not only did she (as the heroine of the dream) expressed definite love for Ranma, but she also saw the competition as cruel dominatrixes (an especially disturbing case with Kodachi,) and, when a Knight in Shining Armor Ranma came to rescue her, she didn't complain much when he brought her down for an amorous tryst.
  • Disturbingly subverted in Saikano: Shuji has a nightmare in which Chise appears in full-on Ultimate Weapon mode and threatens to kill him; confused, he turns and sees Fuyumi naked in bed beside him.
  • Tsukune has a few in Rosario + Vampire, but he calls himself "The lowest of the low" for doing so when he wakes up.
  • Played with in the Lucky Star OVA, when Kagami dreams about Konata casting a spell on her house. To undo the spell, Dream-Konata tells her that she must call out a certain phrase, which she does as she wakes up, only to find her sister staring at her with the wrong(?) idea about what just happened.
    • Specifically, Kagami wakes up saying "I want to *BLEEP* with Konata."
  • Hayate the Combat Butler anime had a SFW version with Hinagiku dreaming of what Hayate would give her for her birthday. She wakes up just before he kisses her, and it's implied that this isn't the first dream of it's type she's had.
    • This is before she's even realized that she is in love with him.
    • Nagi was having a nice dream with Hayate in it.... and then he suddenly started to seduce her (despite her unconvincing protesting). She's awoken just before it gets NSFW.. by Hayate who then proceeds to give her a Headbutt Thermometer. Ship Tease at its absoute finest.
  • Sora no Otoshimono: A Journey to the Center of the Mind reveals that Mitsuki Sohara experiences dreams of willingly doing very naughty things with Tomoki, to which she firmly and violently denies. Apparently, she's very chaste, or so she'd like the others to believe.
  • Great Teacher Onizuka manga: Anko dreamed about Noburo during the Okinawa trip. This was replaced in the anime with him walking in on her from the bath because apparently this was more acceptable on TV.
  • Rito from To LOVE-Ru on occasion, including at threeway at one point in the anime.
  • While never stated, in the 37th episode of the 2003 anime version of Fullmetal Alchemist, Riza has a pretty...suggestive sounding dream.
  • In Afterschool Charisma, Shiro has one of Marie Curie's clone in the fourth chapter. Ikkyu rudely wakes him up.
  • In A Certain Magical Index, Mikoto has one of Touma. The audience just sees her writhing and moaning in her bed, calling out for him.
    • Later, Touma has one of Kaori wearing Index's swimsuit.

Comic Books

  • An elaborate example opens the XXXenophile story "Net Dreams".
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Buffy has a sex dream involving both Angel and Spike, with herself in a Naughty Nurse Outfit, and all three chained to a bed.
  • In Watchmen, Dan has one about a villainess he once defeated, who then turns into Laurie, but the dream becomes rather disturbing after that.
    • More specifically, first he sees himself with the villainess, then with naked Laurie... then they tear their skins off, revealing their costumes underneath. In the movie, they cut out the first bit, because they'd cut out the character.
  • Little Ego is an adult-oriented, erotic parody of the classic Little Nemo comics written and drawn by Vittorio Giardino. The main character, called Ego, is a woman seemingly in her middle twenties. As in Little Nemo, each story is about her having a dream, and she wakes up in the last panel. Whereas Little Nemo talked to his mother after waking up, Little Ego thinks what she will tell her psychoanalyst. Every story in the Little Ego comic book involves erotic imagery, with Ego appearing half-naked or fully naked in at least one point. She has sexual intercourse with men, with other women, and even with plants and animals.
    • It's suggestive rather than outright porn most of the time—but VERY suggestive—and all in all, a lot better than this description sounds.
  • In Zatanna #16 (the final issue of the 2011 series), a seriously sleep deprived Zee is woken from a dream involving two hunky men and a tub of cocoa butter when Uriah breaks into her library. She spends the rest of the issue trying to deal with the pest as quickly as possible so she can get back to the dream.

Fan Works

  • Pick a fandom, any fandom. Some romantic fanfic will have used this at some point.
    • Counts double if it's got at least one character who has some sort of telekinesis, mind control powers, hypnotism, or connection to dream imagery. There's a fanfic out there that features Sheldon Sands from Once Upon A Time In Mexico with the Corinthian. Who, surprisingly, doesn't have all that much fic out there utilising this trope.
  • A Glass of Wine, a NGE fanfic, takes a bit unexpected turn. After Hikari jolting upright in the middle of the night drenched in sweat...

In the dim moon light filtering through the blinds Asuka noticed the condition of Hikari's lower region and understood the ordeal she was bearing.
"That must have been some dream… I want details."

    • If you really want to know, she dreamed of the main cast doing an orgy in the classroom after subjecting her to some mild bondage. Rei was the domina. And to think Hikari's the most innocent girl in the entire cast... wonder how she knows so much about it.
    • Part of an Evangelion doujin consists of Rei having an erotic dream about Shinji. Or to be more exact, she fantasizes about the two of them together naked in a void-like empty space; they kiss... then she starts breastfeeding him. How's that as Mind Screw?!
  • One Suzumiya Haruhi Doujin suggests that Yuki's "irregularities" in Disappearance are erotic dreams featuring her and Kyon.


  • Roy gets one in both Shanghai Noon and Shanghai Knights. In the former, he dreams that he's in a saloon with a number of gorgeous women, one of whom begins to bite his ear as he tells them of his adventures. He awakens to find himself buried up to his neck in the ground with a vulture nibbling his ear. In the latter, he dreams that he's in a room with a number of gorgeous women and his friend's sister. He suggests that the two try some positions from the Kama Sutra and she begins to lick his face, only for him to wake up and discover that he fell asleep in a car and a sheep climbed in and was licking him.
  • Perhan and Azra in Dom za vensanje (Time of the Gypsies.) ...or was it a dream?
  • Ali G Indahouse opens with one, which ends when Ali awakens to find his dog performing upon him the same act that the young lady in the dream had been.
  • One very famous erotic dream comes from the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High, in which the character Brad fantasizes about his sister's hot friend (played by Phoebe Cates) stepping out of the swimming pool and slowly removing her bikini top. This scene has been parodied by both Family Guy and The Man Show as well as Scrubs.
  • Incredibly attractive hacker Acid Burn (played by a young Angelina Jolie) has an especially erotic dream about her main competitor, Zero Cool, in the movie Hackers.
  • The superintendent of a women's prison in the Exploitation Film Caged Heat keeps having erotic dreams throughout the movie.


  • Older Than Steam: In Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene, the Redcross Knight's erotic dream about his ward, Princess Una (albeit magically induced), is the start of his long spiral down the road of sin and despair.
  • The Giver: Jonas dreams of Fiona, experiencing his first "Stirrings" and introducing us to the first sign of how screwed up a Dystopia we're dealing with.
  • Rand from The Wheel of Time has a (to him, at the time) particularly odd dream wherein Min and Elayne are naked and inviting him to swim with them in a nearby pond. Unfortunately, he's interrupted by his past-life incarnation's ex-girlfriend stepping into his dream, so we don't get to see what would have occurred.
    • Actually this one is recurring, and Aviendha is added to it once he meets her
  • In Belgarath the Sorcerer, Riva is visited in a dream by the god Belar, who gives him instructions. Unfortunately, Belar chose the wrong dream to interrupt, and as a result had to talk extra loud to keep Riva's attention.

Riva: "She was really beautiful, blonde hair, dark eyes, and would you believe she had no clothes o--"
Belgarath: "Riva! Forget about the girl! What did Belar say?!"

    • In this case, the erotic dream is also very important, as Riva is dreaming about his destined wife—Belgarath's (as yet unborn) daughter Beldaran.
  • House of Leaves. Johnny has a bunch of these over Thumper. They are eventually crowded out by the nightmares.
  • Happens to Harry in Harry Potter, when Ginny "began cropping up in his dreams in ways that made him devoutly thankful that Ron could not perform Legilimency."
  • Used to disturbing effect in the Ciaphas Cain novel The Traitor's Hand, where Cain starts having erotic nightmares about Emeli, a Slaaneshi sorceress he killed but who is returning as a daemon on the world he is assigned to.
  • Stingo, the protagonist of Sophies Choice has one about a girl he grew up with. It comes across as Nightmare Fuel both to him and the reader, since the girl had just committed suicide.

  • Battlestar Galactica: Kara dreams of Leoben (Paint!sex)
  • Played for laughs on an episode of That '70s Show, when Fez has a dream about Kelso. Played for laughs again in the same episode when Kelso has a dream about... Kelso.
    • In the episode "Eric's Corvette Caper", Kelso thinks he's having one of these, when Jackie and Donna sneak into the room he's sleeping in.
  • I'm Alan Partridge: Whilst it doesn't exactly make him reassess his relationships with them (he's far too shallow for that), the erotic daydream that Alan Partridge frequently segues into in the first season of this show certainly reveals much to the audience in more ways than one; dressed in a leather codpiece and a jumper with the nipples cut out, Alan offers to do a lapdance for a variety of men - all of whom, significantly enough, have a certain amount of influence in determining the future of Alan's career in television.
  • In one episode of Red Dwarf after Rimmer has left, Lister dreams about him returning and being far friendlier than before. They end up hugging, saying how much they missed each other and then kissing. Cut to Lister waking up, screaming and falling out of bed, the incident makes him seek medical help.
  • In an episode of Northern Exposure, the yearly "cracking of the ice" on a nearby river causes general goofiness; in the case of Joel and Maggie, they have erotic dreams about each other.

Dave turns up for the promised pay rise the next day, only Gus has fallen asleep and is having a Homoerotic Dream about Dave, who is immediately thrown out of the office the moment Gus wakes up.
  • Star Trek: Enterprise. In the universally reviled "A Night in Sickbay" (an unintentional Parody Episode) Captain Archer has a dream involving sexy Vulcan T'Pol, Asian hottie Hoshi Sato, and his pet beagle Porthos in the Decontamination Chamber. And you thought Slash Fic writers were inventive...
  • A Different World: Whitley has an erotic dream about Dwayne (this was long before they actually hooked up). She was slightly freaked by the... vividness of the dreams (especially since she was a virgin at the time).
  • In the Married... with Children episode "Nightmare on Al's Street", Marcy has several erotic dreams about Al, much to her horror and disgust. She eventually realizes that the dreams are a subconscious way of punishing herself, because he refused to admit to Al that he was right about something. At the end, Al ends up having a dream about her, which shocks him equally.
    • Of course, Al - being, well, Al - has some weird ideas of what these dreams are supposed to be like. In the same episode, he yells at Marcie, "Why can't you have normal dreams, like where women with four breasts feed you Ding-Dongs?"
  • Lexx: Stanley's erotic dreams typically derail into nightmares. This is as much due to the kind of woman he tends to meet as his own subconscious self-loathing.
  • Supernatural: Sam has one of these featuring Bela, and is very flustered when he figures out who he's been dreaming about (after waking up with an extremely dopey grin on his face). He's even more flustered and awkward when Bela shows up shortly after to talk with him and Dean.
    • His face wasn't the only thing grinning. No joke, this is actually referenced when Dean calls him over as he's waking up. Sam starts to rise, then glances down and hesitates, using a stretch to cover for his... awkwardness.

  • An unintentional example in the Doctor Who story The Time Monster.

It doesn't totally come across that way.
  • A Max Headroom episode centered around technology that recorded dreams - Theora is surprised and pleased to see she plays heavily in one of Edison's dreams.
  • True Blood: Sookie has them with Bill and Eric, and later naked Bill turns up in Sam's dreams.

    • This has been reused a few times since. Clare has a sexy vampire dream about Declan in Season 9. In Season 10 Wesley has a daydream about his upcoming date with Anya, with an awkward ending for class. Fiona's dream is about her best friend, Holly J.
  • An According to Jim moment doubles as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming. Dana has an erotic dream about Jim, which squicks her out to a great degree because they never got along very well, and she never found him attractive. By the end of the episode, she realizes that the dream was a reaction to the chaos in her life, where the knowledge the Jim was a good father was subconsciously very attractive to her at that time.
  • An episode of Wings opened with Brian's sexy dream about Helen. This irked Joe, as he was dating her at the time. Helen, on the other hand, had no problem in joining Brian in teasing the elder Hackett brother about it.
  • In an early episode of Passions, Sheridan wakes up moaning Luis' name. Very embarrassing for her firstly because they were still in the "s/he has cooties!" stage of their Slap Slap Kiss relationship, and secondly because she was overheard and gets teased about it for like twenty episodes.
  • In an episode of King of Queens, Carrie finds out that Doug tends to dream about a various number of women, except about her.

Carrie feels insulted nevertheless, and then starts to write scripts for Doug's dreams, telling him how to appropriately have erotic dreams about other women.
  • In a episoded of Martin Martin has dreams about Pam.

Across town Pam is having a dream about Martin that ends with him getting crushed by the weight instead.
  • In an early episode Community, Shirley tells Jeff that Britta has been erotic dreams about him, letting him known despite Britta's statements to the contrary he still has a chance with her.
  • On Boy Meets World, when Angela asks Cory if he's ever thought of her as more than a friend, Cory responds that he did once when he had a dream about her of this sort. Then, when Angela shoves him onto the bed and climbs on top of him to prove a point, Cory says "Oh no! It's the dream!".
  • In one episode of 30 Rock, Jenna and Tracy begin having these about Kenneth, which counts as a Homoerotic Dream for Tracy. The only way they can solve it is by killing him in the dream.
  • Strong Girl Bong-soon: Averted and maybe even subverted by Bong-soon's Romeo and Juliet dreams. They all start out looking very romantic and promising to escalate, but rapidly turn increasingly bizarre the later in the series they appear.
  • In one episode of Home Improvement, Jill confides in Tim that she has dreams like this all the time about Tarzan. Tim thinks this is silly at first, but Wilson, ever the voice of reason, helps him analyze it, suggesting that if she's dreaming of Tarzan, she would be playing the part of Jane, resulting in two people with the same first name initials as the two of them. At the end of the episode, Tim tries to impress her with a Tarzan costume; which might have worked better if it hadn't been the middle of winter

Newspaper Comics

  • One 1998 FoxTrot:
    • Paige has these all the time, usually involving her being romanced by a handsome Frenchman named Pierre.

    • One 1998 Story Arc was about Jason having one of these about Lara Croft. Jason hates girls, however due to the beliefs kids his age have, so he spent the whole dream trying to get away from her. Needless to say, Peter was upset that he didn't get the dream instead.

Jason: Oh man Peter, I had the worst dream ever last night.
Peter: Oh?
Jason: I dreamed that Lara Croft from "Tomb Raider" was determined to make me her boyfriend or something. It was like eight straight hours of misery. She just would not leave me alone. She even threw herself on top of me four or five times. Judging by the look on your face, I'm guessing you had lousy dreams,too.
Peter: Jason, are you familiar with the extra little prayer I say each night before bedtime?

      • In fact, she gets rather grossed out by the thought of it.
  • Tsukihime has Shiki being shown one of these by one of Arcueid's familiars, in the Near Side routes, as a way of showing her gratitude for helping her defeat Nero Chaos.

Shiki also has a maid who wakes him up every morning - combine that with a Raging Stiffie and Shiki apparently talking in his sleep for a Crowning Moment of Funny if the dream is about her.
  • Space Quest II; in one scene, where an alien hunter traps Roger using some hallucinogenic poison, Roger dreams he's Leisure Suit Larry about to get to second base with a girl; something of a Shout Out and shameless plug on Sierra's part.
