Rape in Dreams

The act of being raped in dreams is a strong sign of a bad relationship. You are most likely with some one you feel inferior to. Instead of being in a partnership where you and the other person, listen and help one another, the other person most likely dominates. You feel insecure and unable to make them listen to you. There’s a feeling of being tied down and not being able to defend, or protect yourself. You’re in fear that your partner can hurt you and that you’re not safe when you’re around them. It’s a sign that you’re not being taken seriously and that your partner doesn’t really care much about you.

This is the time for you to re-evaluate your relationship and talk about it. You can’t just live in the shadow of someone else for the rest of your life. Stand up, and be strong, because you’re the only one in control of yourself.

  1. In my nightmare, I dreamed of my husband raping me. He is a very loving man and would never do such a thing, but it still bothered me. Cps caused me to get raped when I was a child. But my husband doesn’t work for cps. I have regular nightmares about cps, they gave me ptsd. Sometimes I relive my kidnapping in a dream, sometimes it’s my own they are going after and I have to sit and watch my beautiful babies suffer the same truama CPS caused me to live through. I’m used to the human trafficking agency invading my dreams. But this is the first time I had a dream where my husband was so evil. It never happened before. I am still bothered by it.

  2. In my dream i was living on this campus and I remember my neighbor coming towards where I lived. He entered and raped me and then shot me 6 times in the chest. I survived but my whole dream was me escaping death after that…people were chasing me. Wanting to kill me for the man who raped me. But they never actually caught me.

  3. I had a dream my mom was raped. In the dream my mom and I were trying to locate a place but we couldn’t so she suggested we spend the night in some stranger apartment which I felt the idea was absurd . We entered the room and a man was lying on a couch and my mom went straight to the bed to lye down . I couldn’t stand it anymore so I left the room in anger and the next I started hearing my mom screaming and I rushed back to the room to find the man rapping my mom and immediately I entered the room he let go of my mom so I tried hurting him with a knife but I couldn’t do much to my surprise my mom doesn’t look like she was still offended

  4. Asalamualikum, I saw someone tries to rape me , I struggle much to escape but I kill him by taking him in two hands and revolving him circles and thus his head gets hit by something and I just saw some blood on ground no dead body… Fearing that my parents will get involved, I tell them we have to run as the person who got killed is very influential person, so we take handful things and I start car and it moves slowly, I feel keys are not getting inside key hole but car is moving , some people try to stop us in our lawn only but I don’t stop, n then I woke up and it was fajar time. Please tell me what it signifies thank you

  5. Hi, i need your advice as i had dreams of my cousine sister getting raped again and again. I had dreams about myself too but now my sister is grown up and i had her dreams. In the latest dream i saw a baby girl around 2-3 her face was similar to a girl living in my building she was not talking and she was scared i asked her if something happedned if somebody did something to her and than she took my brothers name and than she became my sister as she was in her childhood when she was 4 she told me that my own brother raped her and he is going to do it 2 more times and in dream my brother also told her that he has to inform some doctor before or after sex and she was smiling while telling these things our house was full of relatives. I cried a lot in my dream. Once i had a dream in which we both me and my sister were there but in the begining i was alone. Some army came it was a very cold place i ran away from there when i went back there were many naked bodies and i saw my sister over there she was also raped and she was looking as she is now 14 and she smiled and used an awful langugage to describe how she was raped.

  6. I had a dream my spouse and I are separated (we kind of are) he came back from his extended vacation telling me our youngest couldn’t come back if he couldn’t. I allowed it as long as we were roommates. He signed a lease and everything. Some time went by in this dream everything was fine. I watched how I dressed and walked through the house (wearing baggy formless clothing). On my day off I got all the kids to bed. Then I laid down reading a book and fell asleep. I woke upbto the weight of someone on me. Thinking it was one of the kids I tried to move over. I couldn’t move. He was taking of my bottoms and he raped me. Over and over. I couldnt scream. Then i woke up jumped out of bed scared.

  7. I had a dream i was in the house my partner and I share. He was playing video games with his guy friends but there was this guy friend I never seen. I remember I had to do something so I told my partner I’ll be right back. As I m heading back to the room I look into the other room where I see my 3yr old daughter screaming and crying grabbing her little part. I looked at her and I see the guy that I never met he was with my daughter. As I go in the room I see blood and she didn’t have her underwear. I saw this Son Of a Bitch with his Dick out. As I look to the side I saw this pair of scissors and without thinking I tackled him I grabbed the scissors and stabbed him. At this point I stabbed him so bad that I killed him. I remember grabbing my daughter and taking her to the hospital. I also remember thinking I’m going to jail but that wasn’t my concern all I felt was anger and fear for my daughter. The dream felt so real and the feelings I felt I felt them when I woke up. I was glad it was only a dream. But better believe I’ll will kill whoever hurts my kids in any way and I won’t give a Damn if I go to prison.

  8. I had a dream I was in the garden with my friend and when we looked over the gate there was a man I’ve never seen driving a really long car so we started taking photos on our phone that’s when I get chased into my house trying to lock the door behind me but I couldn’t and every time I tried to ring the police it wouldn’t work then he’s on top of my trying to sexually assault me in the end I manage to run away but still unable to call the police and no one would help me
    I literally have no idea why I dreamt this I didn’t even recognise half the people in the dream 😩

  9. Last night I had a dream or should I say had a nightmare that I was being raped. In the dream I was in bed sleeping and someone came into my bedroom from behind my back was to them put their hand over my mouth and started to rape me. It seemed so real and I live alone. I’m not in a relationship and having that relationship theory doesn’t fit here.

    It’s been bothering me off and on all day– such a scary dream!

  10. I dreamt I was raped. I was in same position when I was going to sleep, the things around my room too are on same position, same actual im sleeping coz i can see the clock and when i woke up thats 10mins from what i have seen it in my dream.

    In my dream, I was lying on my bed. My face at my side. My chest on the bed so i wasnt sleeping with my back on the bed.

    I heard somebody was walking near me and can feel somebody was behind me. He was licking my lower back. I cant move. And tried to penetrate me but did not pursue coz somebody is coming. He walked circling me so i can literally feel with frozen body that somebody was walking on my bed. He walked and circled me 2x. It feels so real coz i was lying at the edge right side of my bed. So when he was walking circling, he would need to climb his feet up to my bed, walk some steps on my bed, had to go down off my bed. Walk at floor and on the bed again. I saw his feet and it’s a man’s feet.
    Then he was already behind me caressing my back. Hugged me at my back it feels really heavy and I STILL
    CANNOT MOVE. Im so scared to see his face coz his face is just behind my head so i closed my eyes and try my best to move but i really cannot move. I try to feel what he was going to do coz he pulled himself off my back but caressing still my behind. I felt he was going to put it in behind me. On my va****. I really felt there was pain and movement and he the again hugged me at my back while hes moving so i felt his heaviness again and he was making a very silent moan. I felt his breathing at my ears. Then there was a bang at the door and the bang was so loud, i finally woke up. But the dream is trying to drag me back so i fought it so hard this time now that i can already move.

    It was really scary! It was so real. I felt pain even when i woke up. Everything i saw in my dream was in same arrangement. Things are on same spots they are placed.

    By the way, this only happens when i sleep half naked. Like i am just wearing tshirt and panty. Or no tshirt and just panty coz i feel comfortable when i have less
    Clothes when sleeping.

    1. That’s means you need to cover up when you sleep even if it’s shorts and a tshirt but those dreams are warming

  11. I had a dream someone I knew was threatening to rape me and he had just murdered someone. In my dream he was a priest and we were in a funeral
    Home he had murdered the deceased he was about to proceed over and I tried to get my mother to help stop my rape but he covered her mouth in chloraform. I screamed to wake up and stop it from happening just before he actually raped me in my dream

  12. I had a dream my boyfriend. The man I been with for almost 6 years was raped. I have 3 kids with him. We are madly in love he is my better half. So information I just read above is bunch of Bs. Totally inaccurate. Why did I dream about something so weird and scary can you give me any answers to what this means and why I dreamed it. I don’t know if this helps but my boyfriend is incarcerated right now he’s been locked up for over a year. Thanks

  13. Okay so I dreamt that my mom was making food. So she invited family to come eat and my grandpa from my moms side was there.I noticed that he had taken my little sister to the bathroom. I didn’t see it but it was a feeling. So I yelled and I told my sister Jessica to go get her. But in all that I guess he had escaped and so when we got my sister she was in tears and I was hugging her and protecting her.

  14. I dont mnow how to feel about my dream. It was that my boyfriend was trying to rape me, what was unsettling was that i did want to but I wanted to shower first but he wanted to have sex now. I said no and he wouldnt stop and forced himself on top of me and i kept screaming no, no but he would just say let me put it in. And i was trying to cover myself so he wouldnt and said this is me saying no i dont want to and i woke up before he actually went in…. Ive been with him for way over a year but we have been on and off because of his cheating and lying. And i did always feel used before because whenever i wasnt in the mood he would get angry and turn cold towards me. And it made me feel so bad i often would have sex with him just so he woukdnt get angry… We are in a better place now but I dont know what to think about this or how to feel about it… Am I just scared of him? Sexually? Ive always been very scared of rape and i hate to feel scared of it from him. Someone please help me understand.

  15. Hi can someone please help me. I have just woke crying from a dream. In my dream I was at a girls house from work, I was there with my 8 year old. We was watching TV when her friend came over .I tried to call a taxi to go home but it kept saying I have dialled a wrong number so I called my partner. During this time 2 more girls appeared and banged me and my son on the head . I woke up to us both being tied up and I looked at the window and my partner was there banging on the window . He couldn’t get in. I was then rapped as my son and partner looked on . In my dream I am telling my self to wake up . One of the girls shot my partner through the door thwn brought him in side and just as the man grabbed my son I woke crying and shaking. Went to check my son and phoned my partner .

  16. I dreamed that I was in the backseat of a car that Chris Brown was driving. He was pulled over by police I pulled out a gun but didn’t know the police were already by his window and saw the gun. The officer snatched the door open pulled him out of the car, pulled out a huge erect penis and violently raped him. I then politely handed the officer my gun when asked…

  17. last night I dram that me and (I think my older brother) were in this apartment (2nd floor ),I don’t remember exactly what we were doing but I herd this weird scream I went to the window and saw this guy causing it(the apartment has front and back door- noise coming from back part-)when I moved the curtain enough to see him he spotted me (like I was the one he was looking for) I got scared and went back to where I was before a few minutes later I felt somehow insecure and locked myself in a pretty big closet; then I remembered I didn’t lock the door to the room but I was to scared to go out again (I have no idea where my brother was at the moment). I had my hands in my ears so I wouldn’t hear the person outback but a few minutes ago he(looked like a total phsycopath) pretty much barged in to the closet pined me to the floor and started unbuckling his belt (reflecting upon it now I have no idea why I didn’t run at the moment)the weirdest thing is that I was wearing a skirt or dress (I don’t ever use one-only special occasions-but I was just at home) if I try really hard to remember I think it was my 8th grade graduation dress (I only think this because of the skirt color ) and then suddenly the person who was with me at the house (brother I think) had a kitchen knife and stated the guy three times (1 back 2 in abdominal I believe) I ran to the phone and tried to call the police but it took very long for them to answer then I realized I dialed the wrong number, so I hung up and called the police it still took a while but they answered and said they were too busy to come… I was horrified ;I went back to the closet room and find the attacker on the floor. I have no idea what happened next but the next thing I knew we were on the first floor with my parents. Talking to this guy who works in the police department I explained everything to him then he asked why I hadn’t called the police and I explained; I think after this we went back to the apartment and I went to go check on the attacker and relived everything with the dead body (no idea why I did that I think trying to remeber) then when I was on the floor he suddenly woke up and I had no choice but to stab him again with the kitchen knife & so I did and ran out the weirdest part is that when I stabed him from behind I saw my little sister being the one stave I didn’t stop though (I don’t remember anything else except I woke up to go to the restroom and had another dream about running away from someone who wanted to rape me) then I think I woke up again because my mom was going to wok and had another dream involving my friends and acquaintances where we were in some kind of park or fedtival ( weirdest part is I got myself a boyfriend that day -never would have thought of that-but it was one of my friends ex) I only remember one of my other friends asked me something and I responded like I would in real life( I said I would punch or slap him if he did whatever my friend said) it’s weird that I was pretty much hugging him while we were walking ’cause I would never think I would do that ( I was hugging from behind around the neck-not choking him-) its also weirs that he didn’t say anything when I said I’d punch or slap him but my friend (his ex) told me that was so like me. I don’t get any of this please help.

  18. So I had a dream I was walking to the store, seen four guys sitting in a car so I turned around to go back home they followed me, I tried using my phone to call my closest friend coco they started damanding they rape me or get money from me I didn’t want to do either….. Than they let me go I went back to the church we were at and told coco what had happened and then I woke up crying….. What am I having this dream?

  19. I had a dream about getting raped by one guy from my school band. My best friend and i had a sleepover at a random hotel and while my friend was asleep he came in and raped me. The worst part for me is that i liked it. I woke up confused since i know this guy in person and although he can be really mean to others he’s a cool guy. I wonder what that means and i reeeaally hope i don’t have any secret desires for him.

  20. I had a dream that I was raped. I was calling my boyfriend, my mom and my aunt. No one saved me. The same guy came after me again this time my boyfriend was there, my boyfriend pulled a knife and was slashing him. I took the knife and pushed it in his heart.

  21. I had a dream that i got raped but I don’t know where. my aunt was at home when the guy came again but she didn’t try to help me and he broke in and I ran for the knife I keep in my room n he came tackling me. The face of the person in the dream is someone I know and is genuinely creeped out by bcas he looks n seems like a rapist to me 🙁

  22. I dreamt i was raped by some one i let stay where i lived ( i dont really know the person) , snd after that he wouldn’t let me leave, he was guna do it again but i was able to go outside and i told my ex, a bit later on my ex killed him.. It was kinda wired if anyone knows what that meens pls share

    1. Checking at your life spiritual, in seems nothing is moving according to your desire. Your finances, relationship,carrier wise, everything is a mess. This is a spiritual husband attacking you and messing around your life, you need to contact a Christian Pastor who can do deliverence to pray for you and deliver from that spirit. Then you will see things will change in your life.

  23. I dreamt that I was being raped by an old man. I fought him off with everything I had but it still wasn’t enough. When I told my fiancé about it, he did nothing! Passed it off as if it were something as small as a bug bite. What does that mean?

  24. I’m male, about 26 years of age. In my dream I’m in somewhat a market place that looks like a middle eastern/India-ish. I saw a tiger approaching me and it is purring while coming towards me. I became scared when it got close because it bit my left leg a bit, just as how dogs play with their owners, then it started licking my crotch and tried to mount me. A sort of American/caucasian animal trainer arrived and managed to get the tiger to go away. I thought it was finished but a mangled/deformed reptile or alligator or large lizard and a big white coat wolf did try to mount me and I was saved by the same trainer. After leaving the area, I was walking away from the market and counted my money but a thug tried to rob me, I stole his knife and tried to run away. As I ran away I looked back and see that he pulled 2 knives that were previously impaled on him and tried to throw them to me while he is calling for reinforcements. Just when I arrive on a dead end, I was surrounded by those gang members and I fought using the knives and a very sharp and large rake.

    This dream sequence sounds crazy but I need to know what this means.

  25. I’m 20 and have almost been raped before but that was when I was 11 and he was a close friend. I have a best friend who is also my ex, and both of us have a close friend that we share. The friend that we share messages me quite often and he recently asked for nudes. Anyways, I had two dreams now. The first one is that I’m in my best friends car and I look up at him but its our close friend and he’s smiling at me.
    In the second dream I had, all of us were going out to dinner, and when our close friend arrived at the house, he locked up my best friend in his room. He brought a friend and he was running naked through the house. He locked up my door, and lifted my skirt, pinned me down and was choking me and forced himself on me. And I was repeatedly saying his name no stop please don’t. But he continued til he came in me. I was forced into the bathroom to clean myself up and he used me again, but this time, I let him and was falling in love w him during the dream. I feel so confused….I woke up from there

  26. First I’m a woman. The past month I’ve had 2 dreams where I am the one raping someone else. The first dream I was in my childhood room and there was a girl my age (26) in my room. She was a police officer and I’d done something to break the law. Unlike most other dreams Ive had I got a really good look at her face and she didn’t look like anyone I knew nor did she remind me of anyone. She was yelling and I knew I would be arrested and sent to jail soon. I grabbed her and started raping her. I never saw my penis, I just knew I had one from the way I was thrusting. I ripped her clothes off and stuffed part of the shirt in her mouth so nobody would hear her scream. She fought hard but I was too strong. I remember feeling a lot of violent feelings towards her like I enjoyed hurting her. I could hear people on the other side of the door, I was mildly worried they might come in but it wasn’t a big concern.

    The second dream I was in a living room I’ve never been in before. I was there to visit with a friend, we had snacks with her mom then went upstairs to her bedroom. My husband was already in her room and we gang raped her. We forced her to her knees and he made her perform oral sex while I rubbed my penis around her butt but didn’t penetrate. This time I actually saw my penis but I didn’t have any specific feelings about it, I wasn’t shocked that I had one nor was I proud of it.

    Neither dream ended with an orgasm, the main goal seemed to me to be about power of some sort. It’d be great if someone could figure out more specific things about what’s going on. I’ve never had a dream where I’m the rapist before now.

  27. I’m 17 and last night I had a dream that I was at my friend Derrick’s house (he’s my bestfriend) and my ex-boyfriend Tyler was over there hanging out with Derrick because they are bestfriends. I didn’t want to hang around Tyler because he’s a horrible human being who would force me to do sexual things with him while we were dating(that really happened), so I was hanging out in Derrick’s room by myself and my friend Jack came in and me and Jack started cuddling like we usually do(we’re just close like that, we don’t like eachother in a romantic way) but Jack started touching me below the belt area and I got upset because I didn’t want him to. He didn’t know why I was upset, he didn’t think he was doing anything wrong until I gave him a note telling him that I didn’t want him to touch me like that and then he stopped and I started crying and he tried to comfort me but I just wanted to be away from him then I woke up.

  28. Ok so im 16 and i have a boyfriend that i love dearly but last night i had a dream i was at his house and i was taking a shower when a guy busted in and raped me right there and left i didnt know they guy but afterwards i was able to crawl to my boyfriend where he hugged me and cuddled me telling me it was going to be ok. Wtf does this mean??? Im so confused.

  29. I had a dream that I was at my house in my garage and me and my daughter decided to go for a walk… this guy grabs us and takes us to his place… (he has a boston accent) He says things to me like im his forever he loves me and to not run away ever again… I don’t understand it because ive never met him before…All I keep thinking about is my daughter and a cell phone I have but cant find in the minutes he walks out of the room… this continues for a day or so… Finally I grab my daughter and run for my life… I get away. Two days later im in hiding in my own house me and my boyfriend go to the gas station and there is a girl somehow she gets my boyfriend to let her drive us somewhere… I get confused and I look at him and he says its okay to go on. The girl begins to talk about taking me back where I belong and I panic bash her over the head open the car door and push her out… I go home and these three little kids show up and give my boyfriend a phone and to call the number in it… he does and the man is saying give him back whats his and my boyfriend can hear an echo on the phone and screams for him to get out of his house, then the man walks down the stairs laughing and grabing for me and I WAKE Up…. The dream is weird I just want to know what it means because I rarely remember my dreams

    1. Judging from what you have said it seems like someone is out to get you or something and you need to be careful. So at the start your boyfriend is tricked by a women. Then you realise she is bad news and kick her out. Then it seems like your boyfriend could be blackmailed through that last phone call or something, realises you are in danger but it is too late. Just be careful with who you are friends with. Bad omen I think or something

  30. I have had 3 dreams now within the last 6 months about my ex boyfriend rapeing me. I have a new boyfriend now but I still keep having these dreams about my ex. This last dream pretty much went like this.. we woke up in this bed with 2 other gay guys and he started to rape me. I was thinking that he wasn’t going to get away with it this time but the 2 guys didn’t do anything for me. All they were doing was making out. I kept on trying to scream and get away but I couldn’t, so at one point my ex got so mad cuz I was trying to get away, he picked me up and put my vagina on one of the gay guys faces and kept on shoving me into his mouth. I eventually woke up but I don’t know why I keep having these vivid dreams. Can someone interpretate this for me?

  31. I had a dream where I was tied down and raped by myself… Well, the male version of me… I was saying really awful things and the male me seemed like he enjoyed himself and like he punishing me for something? I wasn’t fighting back, either… I ddn’t want it, but I wasn’t preventing it. What does it mean?

  32. Hi my boyfriend had a dream that I got raped, and I now who raped me but didnt want to say who it was. Does anyone now what this means because it kindof scared me? Thank you

  33. I had a dream in which my boyfriend tried to rape me and ended up breaking my leg, and my mom was sitting there watching and told me I had to learn to defend myself. Then everyone in my house was acting like it wasn’t a big deal and wouldn’t take me to the hospital to help my broken leg. I’ve had a couple of these dreams about my boyfriend and other people. Could it be related to me having negative sexual experiences at a young age and not telling my parents about it?

  34. I keep having this dream of this older guy I like and he is raping me, it is weird because my friends think he like me and he is just afraid to tell me. I looked on this other website and it said if this dream keeps happening it means the man has really strong feelings for you but he is afraid to tell you!! Should I trust the other website??

  35. Last night I dreamed that my husband was raping me repeatedly. The weirdest, most disturbing part was that his penis was really tiny and had a mouth with teeth on the end. He kept forcing intercourse on me even though it bit me painfully every time. I should mention that our relationship is in a really bad place right now, and I plan to leave him, but he has never physically harmed me in any way. If I hadn’t already planned to leave, this dream would definitely make me consider it!

  36. I had a dream lay night where I watched this girl being dragged by her tied arms in a green walled room and the walls were green tiles like a giant shower and a man, I didn’t recognize him, walked in and threw the girl against the wall and raped her. All I remember was the girl screaming ‘No! Please don’t! Please don’t hurt me! Owwww! Help!!’ and the girl was crying really hard and the man kept raping her … My sister told me that I kept saying ‘Nick,Nick,Nick,Nick Chamberlain…’ (my exes name)

  37. My fiance told me that he had a dream where he had a gun and raped me repeatedly. He said that he raped me vaginally, anally, and orally and ejaculated all over me. He also said that I was crying the whole time and the more I cried, the worse the rape got. When he was done, he put the gun to my head, pulled the trigger and water shot out. What does this mean? Should I be concerned?

    1. It really sounds like your fiancée is messing with you (albeit in a creepy way). Why would he tell you something like that?

  38. Lately Ive been having repetitive dreams about me being raped. The funny thing is , im currently in a relationship with someone that i feel totally comfortable with and I love him a lot. The people who are raping me in my dreams are always people i dont know in real life. It happens in different scenarios all the time. Could you help me figure it out ?
