Hi, I am extremely confused. I keep having a dream (nightmare?) of myself (willingly) having sex with my mother (I am a 37year old woman). I am definitely heretosexual, happily married and have no recollection of any childhood sexual abuse. Is there something wrong with me? I feel so guilty when I wake up - as if I've done something terribly wrong. The worst thing is that I don't even like my mother much...What is happening to me? Help please...

Its probably no reflection either of your sexual orientation or of childhood sexual abuse, nor of incestuous interests on your part. Such dreams / nightmares are often of essentially random content, and neither reflect the past nor predict the future. Where they have any trace of meaning at all, it's usually in the form of symbolism, such as suggesting, in vulgar terms, perhaps, that occasionally you feel screwed by your mother ?
