I joined this board about a year ago but this is actually my first post ever.
My question has to do with sense of taste while dreaming. Yesterday I dreamed that I was drinking beer–two cans. I remember thinking to myself after I drank one of them, my God, this tastes like crap. When I tried the other, it had a very pleasant taste.
How common is it for people in dreams to have a sense of taste and other senses? I guess I’m referring in particular to both touch and smell. And if so, would this be any indication of a person’s ability to have lucid dreams?
