Sleep experts have revealed millions of Britons are now having dream sex regularly as we enjoy raunchy romps each night in our minds.
While the most common dream sensation is sex – with 12% of people reporting they have saucy dreams – it was closely followed by 10% of people who regularly dream of being chased or falling from a height.
The results of the poll by sleep wellness brand eve were published on World Sleep Day yesterday.
Dream analysts also helped decode the most common dreams with experts saying dreaming about being pregnant signifies creativity and nurturing something in your private or professional life.

Dreaming about being naked in public symbolises a lack of preparation on a particular subject and if you lose teeth in a dream, it’s likely you feel out of your comfort zone as you are about to undergo big life changes.
Death symbolises the end of something – whether it’s a relationship, a job or a toxic situation that’s been weighing you down and water is a symbol of growth, fertility and creativity.
The survey also found the average Brit gets five hours and 36 minutes uninterrupted sleep a night, and a staggering 87% of people reported waking up because of a dream – whether it was good or bad.

To tackle this, eve sleep has come up with the first ever ‘night mode’ television advert with Channel 4 to help remove the stimulating effect of blue light before bed.
The brand found one in 10 Brits attributing poor sleep to checking work emails before bed.
The new ad, which will air during a 9.45pm break of Homeland on Sunday, is a 90 second film that uses an amber coloured filter to relax viewers before bed.
Cheryl Calverley, Chief Marketing Officer at eve sleep said: “Dreaming reveals a lot about how you’re feeling, and how you’re sleeping.
“It’s our mission to help Brits wind down so they can have sweet dreams all night long and we are excited to do our bit with our ‘night mode’ ad break reducing the harmful effects of blue light on sleep.
“Despite the fact that sleep is a fundamental driver of both mental and physical wellbeing, it’s still treated as a luxury rather than a necessity.”
The advert is part of eve sleep’s wider campaign to lobby the UK government to recognise the ‘Right to Sleep’ under the Human Rights Act 1998.
