In a documentary titled 'The Girl Who Talked to Dolphins', Margaret Howe Lovatt has explained what happened when she tried to teach a bottlenose dolphin named Peter how to speak English during a NASA funded experiment in 1965.

Lovatt, then 23, was stationed in US Virgin Islands with a male dolphin where the two of them would eat, bath and sleep together. Peter apparently fell in love with her. Lovatt realized the sea mammal was becoming sexually aroused by her, according to a report.

"Peter liked to be with me. He would rub himself on my knee, my foot or my hand and I allowed that," she was quoted as saying.

"It would just become part of what was going on, like an itch, just get rid of that scratch and we would be done and move on," Lovatt added.

The two did not have sexual intercourse, though Howe admitted the relationship was 'sensual' for her.
