A while ago I read "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers." There was an interesting section about neurons, the brain, and sleep (Chapters 10 & 11) that gave me a breakthrough.

I'm going to butcher this but the gist is that neurons are interconnected in general areas. "Girls" will contain neurons related to every girl you've ever known. "Colors" will fire neurons related to every color you've ever seen. When you fire one neuron, the related ones will fire. If you think of one girl, you'll slowly fire all the neurons around the "girls" section. This is why it's easy to recall your favorite impressionist painter when you think of painters with similar style. This is also why you'll remember what your grandma's house will look like when you smell her cookies. They're all interconnected.

Later the author describes sleep and the purpose of dreaming. There's lots of speculation as to WHY we dream, but for various reasons sleep and dreaming are meant to construct, strengthen, and rebuild neurons and synapses. If there's neurons that aren't being used often, your brain will fire these up while you sleep to keep them strong. Neurons act in a "use it or lose it" fashion, so you have to keep thinking of something to keep it fresh.

Personally...I have recurring dreams about my ex girlfriend. It's been two years since we broke up so their frequency has greatly diminished, but there was a while that it was happening a few times a month. My theory is since we were so pair bonded, my brain contains tons of neurons that lead to my ex girlfriend. Smells, locations, people, activities. When a neuron in that area fires, the synapses around it follow until it gets to the area for my ex. My brain says "Why aren't these firing? What's up with all these f***ing dormant neurons? Better start firing em up!" The result? Dreams about my ex girlfriend.

Replace my ex girlfriend with your favorite pornography, and I think we have an explanation.

If this doesn't make sense I highly recommend the book, it's explained in much more detail.
