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!!!
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!).
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...
