    Worth noting for the TLDRs out there that the dolphin that was working with Margaret did not take LSD, although other dolphins were given LSD.

    The interview at length on RadioLab says pretty much the same as that posted by ChloeWhyte, except it also goes into the aftermath in the scientific community.

    I found a site with the woman's notes from the experiment.

    Excerpt: "Now, however, when his penis becomes erect, he no longer tries to run me down and knock me off my feet, rather he slides very smoothly along my legs, and I can very easily rub his penis with either my hand or my foot. Peter accepts either and again seems to reach some sort of orgasm and relaxes. We usually go through this three times or so before he quits and starts another game."

    This makes a lot more sense than any political decision made between 2001 and 2008. What next?

    Scientist: "Okay, the handjobs didn't work...why don't you try blowjobs next."
    Associate: "Wait, what?"
    Government rep: "Dude, if you get photos and put them up on facebook, we'll reinstate your funding."
    Associate: "WHAT?!"
    Scientist: "Okay, government guy, you have serious issues, but...deal. Where's my camera..."
    Associate: "You guys are SICK!"
