Sexual fantasies are a normal, integral part of the daily lives. Fantasies can greatly range from sex with an intimate partner, group sex, loving sex and violent sex. Sexual fantasies are defined as, “any erotic or sexually arousing mental imagery that a person has while awake. It can be an elaborate story, or it can be a fleeting thought of some sexual activity” (Hicks and Leitenberg, 2001) So it really is quite broad, fantasies are whatever your mind can conjure up!
Through the study of fantasies, it was discovered that fantasies begin at an early age. These studies state that they begin, for most people, between the ages of 11 and 13. However, in my experience of being a therapist I would suggest that most people’s start much younger!
