    Here is an interesting little tidbit for divers of fairer sex.

    HOLLYWOOD cutie Jessica Alba is so hot, she even gets dolphins horny when she goes scuba diving.

    The actress discovered the cetacean mammals got aroused by her presence when she was shooting dolphin drama Flipper.

    She told MTV: "I don't know if anybody knows this but dolphins get excited, even when you are a human being - and they have long, long... (penises).

    "I didn't know this until I was being poked by a few of them, which was very rude.

    "I think I learned my lesson. I sort of request female dolphins after that because those are horny little b******s."

    Jessica says the dolphin dilemma has become a constant joke with her pals.

    She added: "Needless to say my closest friends and family did dolphin squeaking noises for the next five years any time they referred to me or called me or talked to me, which was pretty annoying."

    I don't want to ruin her self-esteem, but dolphins aren't particularly selective. . .

    Apparently human and dolphin pheremones are quite similar.

    Male dolphins will attempt to mate with anything from female dolphins to turtles. This has nothing to do with Jessica Alba being hot.

    Ditto for dolphins hitting on anything........

    In Cayman Brac, there was a dolphin named Spot that was OK when our wetsuits were on, but when a group of us (guys and girls) took them off to go snorkeling with a real dolphin, well....let's put it this way...everything and everybody - including the mooring ball, was the dolphin's target of attention!!! :D

    Well well well......odd to notice that she mentions the dolphin's "size." So does that have anything to do with the size of their dorsal fin? Hope that isn't getting into the TOS range......

    Wasn't it Stan Waterman who said that male dolphins attacked his genitals while diving in the presence of females? I know I've heard of such attacks by male dolphins on male humans.

    I'm convinced that male giant sea bass detect our gender through pheromones since they often act aggressively towards me while allowing my female buddies to approach closely (or usually the bass approaches them!).

    Stan Waterman has had some interesting experiences.

    Peter Benchley in his last book "Shark Trouble" also talks about a scary experience in a pool with a male Dolphin, who it seemed, had a thing for his wife; and he wasnt going to get between the Dolphin and his wife in the pool, that was for sure. Matter of fact he had to be hauled out of the pool before that Dolphin killed him...

    For about sharks, KEEP YOUR GENITALS AWAY FROM THE DOLPHINS!

    Well of all the reasons for diving dry this has to be the zaniest. :D

    Or do we liberate pheromones in the gas we breath out?

    So that would mean diving dry with a rebreather...

    You know why male dolphins might attack you when you're scuba diving? Bubbles. Bubbles are a sign of aggression for most marine mammals, which is why people swimming with whales usually freedive. Anyway, I read somewhere that with dolphins, copulation is a form of communication when it's not mating season... and that male calves have been seen doing it with their mothers, but I guess it could just be that dolphins aren't very selective, like a previous poster said.

    Copulation as a form of communication? Well, women always wanted better communicators...

    I have a few books that say that. But I can't find any links, so you don't need to take it too seriously...yet. Maybe it's more like "fun" communication?:confused: But I'm pretty sure sex for them doesn't mean exactly the same thing as it does for us.

    the question is... when you search for dolphin on google you easily fall on an aparatus for women's pleasure... is she talking about the animal or the toy ?? :)

    there's a french book called "malin comme un poisson" which explains how the fish react underwater, and some stuff. quite interesting what we think we know about them :)
