Let’s Talk About Dolphin Sex
Kirsty Kross [AU/NO]
My cousin claims to have had a relationship with a female dolphin for several years on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia. Then a friend of a friend was a screenwriter for a popular teen, oceanic, drama series which involved research at Seaworld about dolphins and, of course, their very active sex lives. Apparently there is a reason why tourists must wear a wetsuit while swimming with dolphins… Then a friend of mine that took a lot of hallucinogens claimed to see aliens transforming into a pod of dolphins at Byron Bay that later tried to seduce him.
“Let’s Talk About Dolphin Sex” features REAL LIFE stories about dolphin sex and the humans they love. Told LIVE in a one night stand sensational performance lecture.
