What are possible meanings for dreams of incest?
People tend to freak out over incest dreams, but incest can be used as a comparison to create symbolism, the same as anything else. It’s all fair game for your dreams.
Incest is a taboo, and can symbolize anything that’s taboo or close to it. For example, dating the younger brother or sister of your best friend is taboo in some circles.
It can symbolize sex—or just the thought of it—with someone very close to you, such as a best friend or teacher.
It can symbolize integrating new parts into the personality. Quite often, sex in dreams symbolizes the integration of new parts of the personality. Physical union represents mental union. In which case, incest is simply a way to symbolize how a relative rubs off on you.
For example, a young woman dreams about having sex with her brother. During the dream it feels very natural, but afterward she questions whether something is really wrong with her. However, the dream simply shows that she’s been learning from his example how to be more competitive. Sex in this dream means “integration.” It means something about him is inside her. Get the idea? It’s symbolism.
Incest can symbolize something that disgusts you, that feels really wrong.
It can be a sign of doing something that invites big trouble with your family. See: Family
It can be a way of saying that two people are a little too close.
It can symbolize talking about sex with a relative, especially if the incest involves oral sex.
It can amplify feelings of attraction for a relative and capture related feelings. For example, a young man dreams about having sex with his female cousin and wakes up feeling dirty. He can’t help but notice that the innocent little girl he grew up with has blossomed into a beautiful young woman. The more he tries to ignore it, the more he feels conflicted. The dream is simply reflecting his thoughts and feelings. It’s not saying he wants to have sex with her. Instead, it amplifies his feelings of attraction so he will come to terms with them, allowing him to notice that his cousin is sexually attractive and not feel guilty about it.
For more example dreams, see: Family, Sex, Sister.
Incest can connect with feelings of shame and self-loathing.
In simplest terms, incest means “inappropriately close,” an idea ripe for use as symbolism.

I had a dream last night where my dad helped me have sex with my cousin. He gave us pills, and gave me a condom. He made every one in our family leave, and all of my cousins family leave, although he stayed in the room. My cousin wore lingerie, though I didn’t, nor my cousin never get naked. We never had sex. A couple of detail, the pills where big and bitter. The condom was green and weirdly shaped. End of dream. This also kind of relates to a dream I had a while ago, before my parents got divorced. My dad made me help my mom have sex with a different man. He made me clean up the house, and also have food for my mom.

Dreaming about having sex with your cousin?
Hi yall, it's my first time posting in this r/!! So today I (23F) had kind of a weird dream that I had never had before. It is fair to say the concept of *incest* as always been present on my sexual fantasies due to childhood traumas.
Recently I got in touch with a cousin (28M) of mine to ask him if he could get me some soccer tickets. I should mention this cousin is very good looking and, if he wasn't a relative, he would be 100% my go-to-type. He was very nice to me during our conversation, got me the tickets and actually bought one for himself as well (+ train tickets) so he could join our plan.
So last night I had an erotic dream involving him as well. We actually didn't have *coitus* per se, but just the thrill of being sexually attracted to each other, foreplay and trying to keep it a secret was arousing enough. I should also mention that I have this cousin on my "close friends" section of Instagram where I sometimes post nudes or erotic photos.
What do you guys think this dream means? I would never act upon it on the physical realm, you know. I'm just curious to know how this can be interpreted. Thank yall.

NSFW This Nightmare I had last night is making me feel physically sick.
TW: Rape and Incest
In this dream, I raped my niece on a park bench. I don't know why this happened, I would never do anything like that to anyone, let alone my niece who is still in diapers. In the dream I was caught and shamed, but for some reason I felt it as me, not the me that did the action in the dream but the real me, I woke up in a cold sweat.
I wish I could erase this nightmare from my mind, I feel so gross.

I had a sex dream about my dad and i'm wondering if that means anything?
I don't like my dad like that and I think incest is disgusting so when I had this dream i was totally freaked out. It's really stressing me out and I'm not sure if maybe I subconsciously like him like that and I'm just scared. What should I do?

TW: Forced Incest Sex Dream???
Ok so last night I (20F) had a dream where I was a kid again, and I was with my mom in this random house, when she pinned me to the bed and started taking off mine and her clothes. I kept telling her no and to stop, and tried to wriggle away, but i soon gave up. i remember thinking to myself as this was happening that i had no right to complain about this, and i practically wanted this to happen. i remember the word “rape” floating around in my mind before i got mad at myself and kept insisting it was my fault. She ended up making me suck her nipples while saying stuff about how im a baby, all while starting to grope me and stuff. i remember thinking it felt kinda good in the dream, more proof that i thought i was asking for it. When i was little and i saw my mom naked i was incredibly fascinated with her boobs, which i think is why dream me kept thinking all that stuff about how i wanted this. overall very weird dream, and to top it off i woke up horny bcus of it. someone please tell me i dont have an oedipus complex now ;-;
