is this about dongs?

i posted this in the philosophy comm and i have a feeling that people who dabbled in this in undergrad or took philosophy in high school have already laughed at it and it's probably old meme but this shit is new to me, k? we didn't have to read the dreams shit back in political theory and we sure the fuck didn't read no Hobbes in motherfucking ~contemporary~ european studies unless some continental hack happened to make fun of him.

link so u can see ppl mockin me

Is Hobbes thinking about dongs or am I?
I am reading Leviathan. In part I, Chapter 2 (Of Imagination), Hobbes says:

as natural kindness, when we are awake, causes desire, and desire makes heat in certain other parts of the body; so also too much heat in those parts, while we sleep, raises in the brain an imagination of some kindness shown.


This is about wet dreams y/n?

also i looked up wet dream in french because i have to appear fluent in french to like pass grad school and stuff and such things come up in wank cultural studies. it's "pollution nocturne" which is exactly what it looks like to english-speakers... but i think that translation may be a crock since it only has 7000 google hits. then again, the french are nasty and have sex 24/7 and probably only sleep in cum-stained sheets so maybe there's no need for such a term.

I would say it appears to be about wet dreams, yes.

what makes you think it is about wet dreams specifically and not sex dreams in general?

Actually, that's a good point. It may not be about that exactly. He could just be saying that just as we fantasize sexually during the day, our brains cause us to remember that good feeling which causes us to fantasize in our sleep too. *shrugs*
