Dolphin voyeurs kill the mood for saucy submariners

Some of the world's richest people are reportedly using their private submarines to indulge in deep-sea sex in front of panoramic marine vistas. But these aquatic trysts are sometimes interrupted by groups of voyeuristic dolphins, which excitedly tap on windows with their beaks.

One of the world's top designers of luxury subs, US Submarines president Bruce Jones, told Bloomberg that dolphins were a problem for the amorous owners of his multi-million dollar vessels.



"Dolphins are easily excited when they sense people making love. They get jealous and bang their noses against the window," Mr Jones said.

Around 100 luxury submarines are believed to be submerged in the world's oceans, but it is not known who owns the majority of these undersea palaces.

Swimmer Escapes Rape by Dolphin who seem to be swingers


OSLO, Aug 17, 1999 (AFP) - A dolphin tried to rape a 28-year-old Norwegian swimmer who had been gambolling with it off the south coast of Norway, the newspaper Verdens Gang reported Tuesday.

The animal, which had been circling around the swimmer, suddenly stuck its penis between his leg and his bathing costume before the man managed to free himself and escape back aboard his nearby boat.

"At first I thought it was pushing me with its flipper but dolphins don't have flippers beneath their bellies," the unidentified swimmer explained.

Another swimmer who witnessed the scene from the boat told the newspaper he had to ward off similar advances from the dolphin a few minutes earlier.

Friendly dolphin 'a sex pest'
Swimmers warned to avoid horny dolphin
(June 4, 2002) In the UK, tourists enjoying the waters off Dorset have been warned to beware of a horny dolphin named George, who arrived in the area about two months ago. "This dolphin does get very sexually aggressive. He has already attempted to mate with some divers," said Ric O'Barry, a marine mammal expert who warned that "dolphins are wild animals and get very rough with one another when they mate. They can weigh up to 400lb and someone could easily drown under the sheer weight." Read the full story at The Times Online http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-316359,00.htm...

1. so what is reverse ''beastiality'' called?
and if it's a critter with a brain as big or bigger than ours -- and obviously extremely intelligent -- is it beastiality or inter-species sex?

any way -- just another reason for me not to get in the ocean.

which i don't do -- cause there are sharks there.

yeah, yeah i know -- but it's my phobia -- ok?

But only if you work for a company that builds luxury submarine yachts for billionaires.


At U.S. Submarines we have developed the world's first personal luxury submarines, capable of taking you and your guests to unseen regions of the deep ocean in perfect comfort and absolute safety. And once there, you are able to view the fascinating denizens of the deep through large, panoramic viewports, while relaxing in an interior replete with luxury and warmth.

Powered on the surface by twin turbocharged marine diesels, all of our luxury submarine models, with the exception of the small Triton 650, have extended surface range and are capable of diving to 305 meters (1000'). Bad weather? Simply close the hatch and dive, cruising effortlessly far below the waves in air conditioned comfort. The submarines' battery capacity and life support systems allow you to stay submerged for days at a time.

Our submarines are capable of running on the surface with diesel engines, diving for extended periods under battery power, surfacing, and then recharging batteries and high pressure air tanks while underway. The submarines have large acrylic viewports to provide their occupants with spectacular views of the undersea world. These unique personal luxury submarines also possess the qualities of a luxury yacht; an elegant and comfortable interior, a fully equipped galley, and in the larger vessels, luxury staterooms.

Sci/Tech: Go Nemo in your own Personal Luxury Submarine
Sunday, 08 April 2007 Written by Alexander G. Rubio



The age old question for the rich and the famous, "What do you give the one who has everything?" or give yourself, is, like most things, subject to inflation. Once it was enough to have your own luxury yacht to leave just about anybody in the dust in the conspicuous consumption department. But after a few years, too many mere mortals could afford one. And you can only get so far by trying to impress with size. Sooner or later you're cruising along in a supertanker, and driving a moped to the toilet.

So the new frontier in putting the serfs in their place was your own private jet. But even that was only good for so long. What's a poor multi-billionaire to do, when even crack-pot actors have their own private airport with 5 jets? Upstaged by a glorified disco dancer... Oh, the humanity!

Dolphin Voyeurs

Some of the worlds richest people are reportedly using their private submarines to indulge in deep-sea sex in front of panoramic marine vistas. But these aquatic trysts are sometimes interrupted by groups of voyeuristic dolphins, which excitedly tap on windows with their beaks. One of the worlds top designers of luxury subs, US Submarines president Bruce Jones, told Bloomberg that dolphins were a problem for the amorous owners of his multi-million dollar vessels. Dolphins are easily excited when they sense people making love. They get jealous and bang their noses against the window, Mr Jones said. The best solution was to block the dolphins out with a set of curtains, he said. Another top designer, Herve Jaubert of Dubai-based Exomos, told Bloomberg his clients wrestled with how to conduct a deep-sea love affair in front of an observation window without creating an underwater paparazzi. Around 100 luxury submarines are believed to be submerged in the worlds oceans, but it is not known who owns the majority of these undersea palaces. Russian billionaire Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich has a submarine, as does Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. National Nine News (Australia)

Is an animal, PervScan asked recently, incapable of perversion? An animal would seem to lack not just the consciousness necessary for a perverse decision, but the odd quality that can make consciousness turn around on itself. It is not surprising, then, that if any animal should be capable of a larval form of perversion, it should be the intelligent dolphin. You may know of John Lillys controversial efforts in the 1950s to establish interspecies communication with the dolphin. Evidently these efforts should not be considered a failure, because now its clear that dolphins dont particularly want to communicate. They just want to watch.

This revelation of dolphin voyeurism appeared as a toss-off comment in an article about luxury submarines owned by the super-rich. That phenomenon is strange enough imagine billionaires creeping around the ocean floors, probably looking for places to bury their hoards of gold. Evidently these submarines also make for the perfect pied--terre or fuck pad, since the owners can be sure no paparazzi wait outside to take embarrassing snapshots. In a great example of British humor, the Times spoke of the wealthy sinking to new depths in the mile below club.

Who knew there was a mile below club? As is the case with so many innovations, however, its the unexpected that springs a leak in the best laid plans. (Er, the best plans for getting laid.) You can well imagine why it would be hard to keep hard when dolphins are pounding on your portholes. Sure, in your head you know that youve spent a small fortune on your sub. Sure, it should be impervious to snooping dolphins. But what if theyre not interested in sex per se but in your penis? What if they think its food?

6. This whole subject is too funny!
Edited on Sat Jul-21-07 06:10 PM by supernova
:rofl:

And I can't believe it escaped the Lounge Lizards' notice. :rofl:

Really I don't know why people in the sub would have a problem, unless they are afraid the dolphins would break the glass.

edit: x-posting to the Lounge for Sat night fun. :D
