Feverish like delusions and hallucinations perhaps. In my opinion fevered imagination is like a person thinking of his/her greatest fantasies.

Which can be positive or negative.

I say this, because most of the time "fantasy" is associated with something nice, in this context.

In Spain , this will be understood as "someone who is always thinking of sex" ,

Maybe a "Horny imagination" is ok for an English transation ??

'Lustful imagination' could be one way to say it in English.

Fantasies, like Chileno said, can be good (the kind that children have, and some adults ), but the majority of the time the word is tied to lustful thoughts.

In Mexico, lust is not necessarily involved, and it's used the way Alec has described it.
