MINNEAPOLIS, June 15 -- Men and women dream about sex more than 8% of the time.
So revealed 109 women and 64 men who recounted nearly 3,600 dreams in diaries, reported psychologist Antonio Zadra, Ph.D., of the department of the Universite de Montreal.
About 45% of men said they'd had dreams about sex as did 41% of women, he said at the Associated Professional Sleep Societies meeting here. "There really is no gender difference between men and women offer who dreams about sex," Dr. Zadra said.
Contending that this was the first study in four decades to evaluate sex and dreams, Dr. Zadra and colleagues said that the diaries had been conducted for studies that did not involve sex.
