Dream interpretation: partner shrinks during sex

What does it mean to dream that your partner shrinks during sex? In the dreamer’s own words:

partner shrinks during sex

Don’t worry Barbie, it’s only a dream

I had a dream last night where I had sex with this super hot chick. However, halfway through she starts shrinking tinier and tinier until it’s like I’m mashing my dick into the mouth of a Barbie doll.

This doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s happened more than once. Any ideas what this could mean?

My first guess, which you’ll see here if you follow RadOw’s comments, is that the dreamer is enjoying sex less. The action of a partner shrinking during sex implies that something is diminishing. Since sex is the main action in the dream, you see why I made that connection.

Here is the dreamer’s reply:

I think you hit the nail on the head. My wife has gained weight over this past year and she’s now at her heaviest she’s ever been. Although I love having sex with her, her weight gain has required me to be the more physical one, and I guess in some selfish way I view having sex as being more “work” than it used to be. I wish I didn’t feel that way, but I think it affects how often I initiate sex.

So not only is the dreamer enjoying sex less, he’s having less sex. The issue behind the dream is his wife’s weight gain and how it affects their sex life, so while she’s growing their sex life is shrinking, both in quality and quantity.

Now THAT is what I call some wicked dream symbolism. Having the issue graphically portrayed by this dream helps the guy admit to himself something that’s hard to admit. By doing so he can resolve the issue behind it. As I told him, his wife is the woman he loves no matter what she weighs.
