Both Women and men, 8 in 10 dreams are marked by negative emotions.

1 in 10 young men and 1 in 30 among young women had sexual overtones.

Women dream of males and females equally often, whereas 65 percent of the characters in men’s dreams are males. NO ONE IS SURE WHY.

More commonly, we dream of events in our daily lives, a meeting at work, taking an exam, or relating to a family member or friend.
