Researchers Stumble Upon Gay Dolphin Orgy Off Australian Coast

Dolphins

When it comes to sea creatures, dolphins are already pretty gay. So much so that Glee, that show you pretend you never watched, once called them “gay sharks.” While we wouldn’t agree with that comparison since sharks are a bit too masc dom for our seafaring tastes, we’d definitely agree that dolphins are up there with rainbowfish in terms of aquatic homosexuality.

Confirming our gay dolphin theory are a group of researchers based out of Australia who recently encountered a big gay, dolphin orgy off the coast in Shark Bay. “These dolphins, all but three of them juveniles, organized themselves in four sub-groups in which they were observed engaging in socio-sexual behavior that included mounting and genital contact between individuals,” Krista Nicholson, of Murdoch University, explained. “The subgroups joined, frequently forming a large group and then split again in different group compositions.”

The big gay ocean orgy confirms what scientists have long known: dolphins are pretty gay. Male dolphins in the study spent quality time together after their mating season was over and, in previous research, male dolphins engaged in homosexual behavior to establish social bonds and dominance amongst each other.

Janet Mann, a researcher who's spent decades studying just how gay dolphins get in Australia’s Shark Bay, has also proposed that they may just be practicing mating, which is coincidentally the same excuse we heard from a “straight but curious” guy on Grindr last week. Swim on, gay dolphins, and enjoy the sea orgies.
