We all love dolphins. But few of us love them as much, or as literally, as Malcolm Brenner, who lives in Southwest Florida. Of all the zoophiles I interviewed for this controversial New Times feature story in August, Brenner's story is the one that most shocked readers.
Brenner described how in the 1970s he fell madly in love with a dolphin he was photographing at a local amusement park. After the usual teasing and flirting that comes with mammalian courtship, the two consummated their love affair. The most common reaction New Times heard from readers: "I didn't know that was even possible."

Well, don't take our word for it. Brenner has just released his autobiographically-based novel on the subject, called Wet Goddess. You can learn more about it here.
