Researcher claims she had sex with dolphin during 1960s

An animal researcher has come forward, claiming she had sex with a male dolphin during lab experiments for NASA in the 1960s.

Margaret Howe Lovatt told the Daily Mirror she was involved in an experiment designed to teach intelligent sea creatures, like dolphins, how to speak English.

Lovatt said that one particular dolphin, named Peter, took a liking to her in 1963.

“Peter liked to be… with me. He would rub himself on my knee, my foot or my hand and I allowed that,” she said.

Lovatt said that Peter was “sexually coming of age” and that she didn’t mind the behavior. “I wasn’t uncomfortable – as long as it wasn’t too rough. In the beginning I would put him on the elevator and say you go play with the girls for a day.”

The relationship was sexual on Peter’s part, Lovatt said, but “sensuous” for her. “It would just become part of what was going on like an itch, just get rid of that we’ll scratch and we would be done and move on.”

Lovatt described the sex between her and Peter as very “precious and gentle.” She said the encounters would help Peter focus on his lessons.

The “affair” ended in scandal for the pair, with rumors that dolphins were abusing LSD.

Lovatt will tell her story in a new documentary, “The Girl Who Talked to Dolphins,” which premiers on BBC June 17.

        Wow, way to propagate a truly racist urban myth Ryan. That said, ZA is spouting lies true. Hint: saying “it’s a fact” doesn’t suddenly make a lie the truth.

        There’s waaaaaaay too much race-related stuff in these comments.

    “Inbreeding has always been a significant part of the Caucasian culture,” says race researcher and psychologist Dr. Louis Sidney Jacobs.“Darwin and Houston Stewart Chamberlain denounced racial intermixture and supported racial inbreeding as the best means to perpetuate the qualities of a race. His The Foundations of the Nineteenth Century (published first in German in 1899), one of the most comprehensive accounts of the forces of race, was much appreciated by the Nazis.”

        um he wasn’t actually “from” the Fugees — see this is how rumors get started — Charles McGill was a music video director who won a MTV Award for “Killing Me Softly” he was never part of the Fugees

    It doesnt say she had sex with it. It says she allowed it to rub itself up against her hand or foot. Thats a handjob- still gross

    Silly people are commenting usually if you can’t say something nice dont say it at all. Race and people with aids shouldn’t be in these comments. People of many backgrounds are dying from aids.

    I don’t understand one thing from all of your comments. Why does everything have to come down to race. Listen every and any race has its good and bad, so stop with all the finger pointing and judging that race with onecrazy persons decdecisions. Its all up to the person on what they do or don’t do. And about the article, well she is definitely nasty. But again, it her not all the white, or black, or green, or blue, or purple. So stop the dumb race finger pointing.

      Yep. These comments basically go:

      1. White people call US savages?
      2. Blacks had sex with monkeys and now everybody has AIDS
      3. Yeah well whites have more sex with more animals
      4. Loop, Repeat
      Did I miss anything?

    For one it is fact there is only one true race, the human race. But yet shades instead of colors. For two, the comments were hilarious to read. I guess this is what we as a people do in our spare time… saddening

  • James Rucéttle

    Instead of complaining about the interactions humans have had with animals, how bout everyone here back up and have some respect for the cultures of the world. We are all the same species, the same race. Stop trying to be a race relations forecaster and embrace equality.
