In a bastardization of the original meaning of brothel, such an image suggests the darker, more frightening side of femininity. In fact, women as priestesses seeking union with the Divine were a potent force for life. Hence a brothel may also represent awareness of man?s spiritual debt to woman. To dream of a brothel indicates the wish for sexual liberation and freedom without responsibility. Visiting a brothel suggests the need for comfort and reassurance in a somewhat unorthodox manner. Working at a brothel suggests an appreciation of how women can use their sexuality as a tool. If a woman dreams of being in a brothel, she has not yet come to terms with the sexually active side of herself. If a man dreams of being in a brothel it may show a fear of the feminine.
