      Dreams about things you haven't done (yet) in real life - how accurate are they?

      Have you ever had dreams about real-life activities before you actually experienced them in real life? Example: have you ever had dreams about driving a car/riding a bike/flying a plane/eating something you never ate etc. BEFORE you actually did any of those for real? Since such dreams are completely based on imagination/expectations, I wonder how "accurate" they turned out to be when confronted with a real-life experience. How good is brain at "guessing" how something's going to feel/taste etc. before we actually try it, based solely on what we read, see, imagine and expect? Looking back, how much would you say your "dream" bicycle rides resembled your first "real-life" bicycle ride?

      I had sex in lucid dream before had for real and I must say the dream experience was better, because I can choose various parameters about the girl, damn I still can feel the cherry taste of her lips

      I know I've had that happen before, but I can't remember any specific examples right now. If I do I'll post about it. But the mind can't accurately model something it hasn't experienced yet. It'll just be a guess. What I do remember about my experiences is that my dreams turned out to be off the mark. Wish I could remember details.

      Oh, and I've seen many posts on the board corroborating that as well, from other people.

      In fact, let me add that even things you do have plenty of experience with IRL can be weird in dreams. I've dreamt of driving all kinds of weird cars that don't function anything like real cars, though sometimes they're pretty close. So I suppose you'd have to say there's a range of realism in dreams in general, sometimes they're pretty close to reality and sometimes they're bizarre and cartoonish or surreal. That would be true as well for dreams about things you haven't experienced yet, but I'd say leaning more toward being inaccurate.

      I first flew and levitated before I did in real life. How did they compare? Can't say; still waiting for it to happen in real life. I do not know of any non-fantastical things that happened in dreams before I did that thing IRL, but I have dreamt of free falling and of running a powerful speed boat. I could actually do those things someday. Many things are not overly realistic in dreams.

      My dream sexual experiences predating the real one have always been kind of awkward. I'm not sure if it's appropriate to share such details here, but the biggest problem with my "dream intercourses" back then was that I could always insert only the tip of you-know-what into you-know-what - each time I tried to proceed, I encountered a kind of impenetrable wall which would stop me from going any deeper. It was most likely caused by the fact that my brain's "database" was lacking an appropriate real-life "point of reference" enabling it to produce the actual sensation in my dreams - my brain didn't know what it's like "inside", so it either gave up instead of making a wild guess or perhaps it decided the most appropriate option would be to simulate a hymen which I perceived as a blocking wall.

      I have often had this exact thing. Here is what I think it is. Maybe your body is moving around and trying to grind its hips. You then are impeded by the bed. It translates into the dream as something blocking intercourse. Just my guess.
