It's a weird, weird world we live in; and this story does nothing to dispel that claim. A woman has had sex with a dolphin. Genuinely, seriously, literally, and all the other adverbs you can think of. So far, so bizarre. Three dolphins were housed in a 'domestic dolphinarium' - essentially a normal house flooded with knee-deep water - in an attempt to bring them closer to their human teachers. But Margaret made a special connection with Peter, the only male dolphin of the group, who she has described as "a young guy" who was "sexually coming of age and a bit naughty". The more time Margaret spent with the naughty male dolphin, the closer he became to her. He would rub himself on my knee, my foot or my hand and I allowed that," she explained. But, being the "rambunctious" adolescent that Peter was, it soon became too disruptive to send him down the elevator of the dolphinarium to 'play' with his female fellow species and rid him of his urges.
Female dolphins have clitorises just like human women — only theirs are bigger and better placed suggesting they have better sex sessions. A group of diligent scientists discovered that lady bottlenose dolphins have large and well-developed sex organs meaning they could achieve orgasms. They said the structure of the tissue suggests the dolphin clitoris may expand, for example, in response to stimulation. Their findings were published in Experimental Biology. Previous studies suggest sex plays an important role in social bonding among dolphins, as seen in other social species. Researchers said that dolphins have sex all year round — even during periods when they cannot conceive. Study co-leader Dr. The research team studied 11 dolphins that had died naturally and were collected under a permit authorized by the National Marine Fisheries Service in the US.

When animals attack, sexually. A friend of mine supposedly saw an instance of a dolphin attempting to rape a human on National Geographic. So: are there are confirmed occurrences of dolphin-human rape?
This week, the media went nuts over revelations in a BBC documentary about Lovatt's interactions with a male dolphin during a NASA-funded experiment in the s. It was just easier to incorporate that and let it happen. Then came the headlines.
