Watching manatees mate is like watching dogs mate. It's a gang bang on steroids.

If there is one thing I've never dreamed to do in life, it's being around a shiat load of 1,000lb creatures mating.

Manatee are awesome and love gentle people but I would never get in the water with them during mating season. People that think that is a good idea shuld first hike throught the swamp when the gators are frisky.
Problem soved.

It was later discovered that the people getting in the water were actually members of a TLC film crew who thought they were following Honey Boo Boo's family.

Seems to me manatees are easier to molest than alligators, but the alligators get the signs.

Especially if you're fat. Which, this being America (and Florida in particular), is fairly likely.

That's because manatees don't tend to get all bitey and body-part-eaty. If you get a manatee accustomed to hand feeding, the worst it'll generally do is swim up and look all cute at you, and maybe roll over to have its belly rubbed.

The gatherings happen when males try to mate with females that are ready to conceive and when the females try to evade them.

Or what we call Saturday night...

I went swimming with the manatees on my qualifying dive in Crystal River. They appear to like divers and will veer toward you. They definitely like having their leathery skin scrubbed. I did not get to observe manatee secks, fortunately.

I got married at the South Florida museum, right in front of the manatee tank. Snooty, the large manatee, started masturbating during the toasts, but rubbing his penis against the glass and using a strategically placed log at the bottom of the aquarium. The water started getting cloudy right as the maid of honor was giving her emotional speech, but by then, we were all already crying from laughter and disbelief at what was going on.

/yes, true story!

Back when he was on NBC, he did a bit (I forget the premise; I think mascots were involved) and one of the mascots he presented was a "manatee" touching itself in front of a webcam. Conan then said something to the effect of "the manatee must be on HornyManatee.com." NBC's standards department immediately purchased that domain, because if someone else snatched it up, NBC could be considered liable for whatever content the site owner would post there. Conan and Late Night then turned it into a fake manatee-themed porn site where fans could post drawings and other art. James Lipton even did dramatic readings of some of the poetry.

Okay. I know they need to be protected from us, but don't feed me that line about safety. What in the hell is a manatee going to do to me? Maaybe it can bite your fingers if you stick your hand in its mouth. I can't think of any other possible manatee danger.

15 years ago, in the Web's early days, there was a Dolphin Sex web site.

Now it's manatees.

Really? You don't think two 1000 lb bodies slapping together could possibly cause any harm to you? They'll crush you when they roll apart for the post-coital cigarette.

Viewing from the other side, I imagine this could effect their reproduction rate. Nothing says romance more than being joined in bed by a loud obnoxious gnome with a camera.

Mote scientists are studying the herd by taking photographs and DNA samples to learn more about manatee mating and populations.


Sure, yeah, um, studying...
