Soggy biscuit dream analysis
Recently, I had this crazy dream that I’m embarrassed to write about. All I can do is tell you what happened and see if you can make sense of it.
Here it goes …
In my dream, I was back in my college dorm. Joining me were three hot jocks who I’ve never seen. Don’t ask me why but the leader of the group pulled out a biscuit and said, “Time to play the game!”
The next thing I knew, he put it on a plate. Then, the gang formed a circle around it and started yanking their chains. “Last one to finish has it eat it!”
I totally agreed to play. How could I not?!
Anyway, one by one, each of them started to release. But because I was so nervous, I couldn’t even get it up! In fact, the more I tried, the more anxious I became.
Before I knew it, everyone finished. That’s when the alpha jock handed me the plate and told me “eat up!”.
Just before chomping down on it, I looked at the biscuit and it was smiling back at me! Then, the jocks started making out.
As I was taking my last bite, I suddenly woke up!
What do you think this dream was about? Also, to my mind, I don’t think I lost the game. Instead, I think I won!

Dr. John Responds:
Your dream is fascinating and symbolic, all at the same time. I’ll do my best to interpret what you’ve shared through the lens of dream-speak.
First, let’s talk about “the game” you mentioned. While I can’t be sure, it sounds like you played something called soggy biscuit.
Ever hear of that?
For folks reading this who might not know, I’ll share what I’ve learned through quick research.
What is Soggy Biscuit?
Long story short, “soggy biscuit” comes to us from literature and movies, including Stephen Fry’s The Liar and the German film Crazy.
Sometimes referred to as “soggy waffle” the game is played by having a group of men stand in a circle and release directly onto an edible object.
The last person is considered the loser and therefore must eat the food object. There’s even been videos made about it. Here’s one from YouTube below.
FYI: there have been situations where “soggy biscuit” has shown up in hazing situations, such as one that occurred at a summer basketball camp
I’m only mentioning that last part because it sounds like in your dream, everything was voluntary.
So, what could it all mean?
Soggy Biscuit Interpretation
Let’s start out with the location of the dream itself. You mentioned it was in your college dorm. I’m wondering what meaning that location holds for you?
In my experience, dreams about dormitories are almost always about feeling closed in. That’s because dorms are usually shared spaces that can get cramped very quickly.
Which leads us to the next point.
Dreams About Jocks
In your dream, you mentioned there were three jocks who surrounded you. Specifically, men who you had never had seen before and described as “hot”.
I’d like to pause here and ask are you sure none of them were familiar? Search your memories and think hard. Did anyone from the group remind you of someone from the here and now?
Given the intensity of your dream, I’m wondering if you sometimes struggle with performance anxiety? If so, it is with everyone or just one specific person?
If so, your dream could very well speak to ongoing fears around this issue. It’s possible your subconscious mind is gently nudging you to relax and let mother nature take its course.
Supporting this possibility is your description of the trio that began kissing once you started eating.
Symbolically, kissing represents oral communication. In your dream, it sounds like there were affirming, gentle activities designed to put you at ease.
Dreams about food – like bread – also hold symbolism.
In your case, it was a smiling biscuit.
Generally speaking, biscuits in dreams usually represent comfort. Almost always homemade, these tasty treats also symbolize love.
Here’s my 25-cent interpretation of your dream. Subconsciously, you may be holding fears about performance in the bedroom.
These fears may have become amplified if you recently started seeing someone or if you’ve struggled with this issue because of a new medication, like an anti-anxiety or anti-depressant.
If any of this rings true to you, it never hurts to talk to your doctor. Additionally, there are plenty of books on this topic that you might find helpful.
