WOMEN spend three times as long dreaming about sex as their grandmother’s did, a study has found.
Falling levels of prudishness and the sexual revolution of the late 20th century are thought to be behind the trend.
Researchers from the University of Freiburg in Germany asked 2,907 16 to 92 year olds about their dreams.
Women under 30 said a fifth were erotic, while for men in that age group it was a quarter.
A previous survey 50 years ago found women were thinking about sex during their sleep only a third as much.

The gap between genders has also closed over the decades, a change put down to a rise in feminism by those behind the study published in the journal Psychology & Sexuality.
The report concluded: “One might speculate that younger women in modern society deal with sexuality more openly that older women of previous generations.”
Behavioural psychologist Jo Hemming told the Mail on Sunday: “What they don’t go into is the type of dreams women are having compared to men, which I suspect are still pretty different.”
