Men having nightmares

I can't believe I hadn't thought of this one before, but I am big into men having nightmares, especially if they wake up in a cold sweat. Preferably both shirtless. *cough* Say what you will of the prequels, but Anakin's shirtless tossing and turning nightmares were a highlight. 
Something like ten years ago as an ornery kid refusing to acknowledge I had sexual feelings, I was watching Ian Somerhalder's episode arc on Smallville (season 2 or 3, I think) and there was a scene where he was kinda writhing shirtless in bed. Made a big impression on me.

Re: Men having nightmares

What appeals about it? The vulnerability? The show of fear?

Re: Men having nightmares

Yes, I like the vulnerability, but also they often aren't wearing shirts, and I am into that.

Re: Men having nightmares

I really enjoy the prequels...and am now questioning how much of my enjoyment was my pure love of star wars versus Anakins shirtlessness and crying. Haha

Re: Men having nightmares

I can only recall one occasion where a nightmare actually caused me to jolt out of sleep like that, back when I was a teenager. Oddly enough, though, I find that I sort of enjoy them. They play out like a surrealist horror movie in which I get to be the protagonist.

Re: Men having nightmares

This is definitely a thing for me, but I consider it a part of my crying fetish, because it's the emotional response to the nightmare that interests me most.  Nightmares are just a great tool for getting my boyfriend to cry in my fantasies, because they take you to a very emotional (even illogically so) place, even if there's nothing that bad going on in your life for real.  They're also a great way to bring things to the surface that you can usually hide from in the light of day.  Honestly, I eagerly await the day that my boyfriend wakes up crying from a nightmare in real life. I thought I heard him cry out, "No!" in his sleep once, but whatever I'd heard had woke me up and he seemed perfectly calm when I looked over at him, so either I dreamed it and actually heard something else or it wasn't having quite the effect on him one might have thought.  To this day, I still regret not reaching out to him that night, even though he seemed fine, just in case he was trying to hide it, but that was earlier in our relationship, and I was much less brave about such things then.

Re: Men having nightmares

I certainly can relate and in fact have written a couple of fanfics containing male nightmare scenes.  In both of them, the guy woke up crying and was comforted by another, older guy (a sort of "father" figure).

Re: Men having nightmares

Yes, a nightmare that causes tears is best...then they wake up crying...

Re: Men having nightmares

If you are interested, the tv series Hannibal has more than one (iirc) nightmare scene.

Re: Men having nightmares

I have a fantasy about being in bed with a man who I have to wake from a nightmare. I put my hand on his arm and say, "honey, wake up. You're dreaming. Wake up, now." He wakes up with a jump, scrambles into a sitting position and bursts into helpless tears. I hold out my arms and say, "Come here, darling," and he throws himself into my arms, clinging to me and sobbing. Then I hold him and stroke his hair and tell him over and over that he's safe and I'm there and I won't leave him. I love the thought of having to calm him down enough that he can tell me what's scared him. And also the thought that he's vulnerable enough, having just woken, to need to have his eyes wiped and his nose blown for him while I'm calming him down.
