In a new documentary tagged “Dolphin Lover,” 63-year-old Malcolm Brenner says he fell for Dolly after the aquatic animal made advances at him. At the time of their ‘relationship‘ in 1971, Brenner was a photographer and had access to the pool at the former theme park in Sarasota Florida, where he lived. Read more from the Daily Mail:
In the 15 minute film he says: “I started rubbing her along her back, working my way to her flukes – her tail. “And as I was rubbing her and moving my hand towards her tail, Dolly was slowly rolling around her long axis.”
“There’s something quite transcendental about making love with a dolphin.I was given free access to the dolphins and I became friends with her by going swimming with her. She was very special.She announced her intentions to me by positioning herself so I was rubbing against her.At first I discouraged her, I wasn’t interested. After some time I thought ‘if this was a woman would I come up with these rationalisations and excuses’?It was when the park was closing that we successfully eluded the male dolphin so we could spend some time alone.
I called it a relationship because that’s what it was. When she died it made me feel terrible and I fell into a depression which lasted five years.” Dolly was moved away when the park closed nine months after she and Malcolm had first met.
