Sexual Induced Lucid Dreams – SILD – are some of the most enjoyable types of lucid dreams. If you’re like a lot of adults, you probably already have lots of sex-related dreams. SILD is an ideal lucid dreaming technique to use if this is the case. And actually, there are certain ways you can make yourself have sex-related dreams more often, which means you can use this technique to become lucid even more frequently.
How it works
Like many other lucid dreaming methods, SILD is primarily a way to start recognizing that you are in a dream. In this case, instead of using a letter or another symbol to note that you need to perform a reality check, you use sex-related things to remind you to do one. With SILD, most people will do a reality check when they think of or see their significant other or partner, or when they think of or experience sexual acts.
Once you start doing reality checks throughout the day, whenever you think of something or someone you relate to sex, you’ll start doing the same thing in your dreams. Each time you encounter this act, symbol, or person in your dreams, you’ll remember to do a reality check. Once this becomes a habit, you’ll find that you start lucid dreaming more often than ever before.
Getting sex into your dreams
One of the best ways I know of to have more sex-related dreams is to refrain from having sex in real life, whether because of will, necessity, or circumstances. Since this isn’t a great way to live, though, you don’t have to resort to these extremes to have sex-related lucid dreams. Instead, you can give your body what it needs to boost your libido-forming hormones. When your libido is up, you’re much more likely to dream about sex, whether you’re getting any in real life or not!
One way to up your libido is to take melatonin, serotonin, or tryptophan supplements. Now, of course, you’ll want to check with your healthcare provider to ensure that these supplements are safe for you, but for the most part, they’re generally thought to be safe.
Melatonin is actually used to help induce sleep, since it’s one of the hormones your body produces around bedtime. You may need to play around with it, since it might make you sleep longer than you want to and actually hurt your lucid dreaming progress even when using SILD.
Serotonin is the feel-good hormone, one that your body releases during sex and other pleasurable activities. Tryptophan is converted in the body into niacin, which helps increase the production of sex-related hormones. Having a body full of sex hormones is a sure recipe for inducing sex-related lucid dreams.
Another option is to eat chocolate, which is a well-known aphrodisiac on a chemical level. Chocolate offers phenylalanine, a compound that is eventually converted into another feel-good hormone, dopamine. Also, chocolate is highly recommended for lucid dreaming, anyway, because it contains choline, which can help induce more dreams than usual, and caffeine, which helps with dream recall.
To use SILD, you’ll simply start reality checking with every sex-thought you have. Once you use these chemicals to bring sex into your dreams more often, you’ll be able to use SILD all the time. Using SILD is one of the most pleasurable ways to induce lucid dreams. Since you’re using SILD, you’ll already be in the middle of something pleasurable in your dream when you become lucid and start to be able to manipulate the dream. Just imagine what you’ll be able to come up with when SILD starts to work for you :P
And when you do hit the sack, if you’re looking to bring your brainwaves down to a state more susceptible to achieving lucidity, you may want to give the Lucid Dreaming MP3 a try.
