It’s normal to have sexual fantasies, everybody has them. As you are probably aware, everybody has their own unique fantasies.  Very few people’s fantasies are the same, in other words.

But what is the science behind sexual fantasies, and why do we have them? Understanding what the catalysts for people’s fantasies are can help you to figure out why you are interested in what you are interested in. And, as your sexuality is a very important part of your personality, understanding your fantasies helps you to understand yourself.

Here’s why people have sexual fantasies:


A lot of people fantasize about things for entertainment. After all, what’s not to like about being able to escape into one’s own mind? The good thing about fantasizing is that it’s something you can do without judgment. No matter what you’re interested in, be it sexy milf pornstars, or something else, you can have your fantasies without anybody else knowing. You don’t have to worry about somebody telling you that what you are interested in is weird. Fantasies can also give you ideas and help you to explore your sexuality. It’s always a good idea to explore your sexuality because it helps you to figure out who you are as a person. As mentioned in this post’s introduction, your sexuality is an extremely important part of your personality, and fantasies help you to understand more about yourself.


Fantasies can be very distracting. In times of stress, it’s nice to be able to escape into one’s own mind. Using mobile phones or laptops to distract yourself isn’t always the healthy option (and sometimes isn’t even possible). If you have an active imagination and like to fantasize, then you’ll never need a screen or a device to distract you, you’ll only need your brain. However, it is important to note that fantasizing all of the time isn’t good for you. It’s something you should do in moderation, not something you should do every waking second of the day. You’ll never get anything productive done if you are always fantasizing about things.


Fantasies are often a product of people’s memories, especially sexual ones. People have experienced throughout their life that shape who they are sexual. Some people have experiences that make them interested in voyeurism, while others have experiences that lead them to develop an interest in more mature women. These memories and experiences feed into people’s fantasies, developing and shaping them. Oftentimes, people’s memories will play direct roles in their fantasies. i.e., a person will fantasize about a specific memory that they have or something that happened to play out differently.


Sexual fantasies are different from ordinary ones mainly because they are arousing. People fantasize about a lot of things,  like winning the lottery or getting a new job, but these things don’t tend to be sexual. Sexual fantasies get people off (or turn them on). People fantasize about sexual things in their alone time, not usually when they are out in public or at work. This is because sexual fantasies can be very arousing and can lead to them getting turned on. It is therefore not appropriate for them to fantasize about such things when they are in the company of others.


People sometimes fantasize about things so that they can plan a situation better. If a person is having their date over, then they might fantasize about what’s going to happen after they arrive or plan out the night’s events. Fantasizing helps to give people ideas and helps people to figure out what they’re going to do. However, it is important to note that fantasies are fantasies. Do not trick yourself into thinking that anything is going to work the way that they do in your fantasies. This is the real world, and therefore, things don’t always go to plan.


Finally, fantasies help people to figure out what their sexual needs are. Everybody has their own unique sexual needs. Going back to exploration, fantasies help people to figure out what turns them on and gets them going. Fantasies also help people to identify the exact things that they are missing from their life sexually. Being able to figure out what’s missing from one’s life can be a highly effective way of figuring out what turns somebody on, and then, achieving sexual satisfaction and fulfillment. When you are more fulfilled sexually, you will feel happier.

Sexual fantasies play an important role in many people’s lives. They help people to figure out who they are sexual, explore, and help people to distract themselves from boring situations. Fantasies are completely normal and very good for you, as long as they are thought up in moderation. Too much of anything can be bad for you, even fantasizing.
