A woman has detailed how she had sex with a dolphin during a NASA-funded project in which she was tasked with teaching it the English language. In the BBC documentary called “The Girl Who Talked to Dolphins,” Margaret Howe Lovatt explained the experience while she was stationed in the Virgin Islands in 1963.
According to the DailyCaller, Lovatt lived in a flooded home with a dolphin by the name of Peter for 10 weeks in an effort to teach him our language. During that time, Peter was reaching his sexual maturity and seemed to take a liking to Lovatt.
“Peter liked to be… with me. He would rub himself on my knee, my foot or my hand and I allowed that. I wasn’t uncomfortable – as long as it wasn’t too rough … It was just easier to incorporate that and let it happen, it was very precious and very gentle, Peter was right there, he knew that I was right there,” Lovatt recalled.
Apparently as time went on, Peter’s advances became more aggressive and disruptive. Lovat wrote a passage in her diary that included, “I find that his desires are hindering our relationship, he jams himself again and again against my legs, circles around me, is inclined to nibble and is generally so excited that he cannot control his attitude toward me.”
All of Peter’s advances and flirting eventually led up to what Lovatt described as a “very close encounter,” which for the rest of us pretty much means what we think it means.
Unfortunately, Peter was sent away to Miami shortly after the encounter, where experts believe he committed suicide by sinking himself to the bottom of his tank and refusing to breathe.
Kind of seems like an aquatic Romeo and Juliet, wouldn’t you say?
