Dr. Freud's dreambook associates the subway tunnels with female reproductive system. A lot of narrow passages and tunnel branches, indicate a large number of sexual contacts, and also reflect the dreamer's craving for group sex.

If a man was underground in his dream or descended there, this dream shows his complete satisfaction with his intimate relations; but at the same time shows that he can not decide which of his current partners he likes more. As for women, Freud considers such plot a symbol of looking for lesbian contacts.

If a person sees an accident in a subway, this plot is an unconscious reflection of the dreamer’s fears that he is not good enough in bed.
