Intraspecies Relationships
***Dolphin Couples*** 

Dolphins can to Vulpes from Aquaticus starting in the 2600's, as of last year there were about 500,000 Vulpes-born Dolphins and another 20,000 Aquaticus born dolphins living on Vulpes (mainly in underwater cities).
 
Relationship Traits
 
Emotional
 
How male and female dolphins usually meet: Female dolphins usually live together with other females and their calves while male dolphins are generally more nomadic in nature.  It's not that the males and females don't get along, because they do get along very well.  It's just that Aquatarian dolphins have been "wired" in different ways, where the females generally stick together, while the males are generally solitary*.  Some of the Vulpes-born dolphin males however don't have this characteristic and are sweet and loving mates.
 
Developing a meaningful relationship: Usually, males and females are only together during the spring months when dolphins have their "mating season"...in truth though dolphins are sexually active year round.  During this time, male dolphins are highly emotional and protective of their yiff partners, not wanting any other male to mate with her and/or to protect the female and her developing calf from any potential problems.  Male dolphins will usually spend a couple months with a yiff partner before returning to their nomadic life.  Of course, some of the Vulpes-born male dolphins are much more romantic towards their yiff partners and are allowed to stay with the female until she gives birth (the females will let the males stay with them until the calf is born if they so desire).
 
Dolphin couples that decide to stay together and live on land generally operate the same way that most other Vulpine couples do.
 
Special Emotional Traits: During pregnancy, a female dolphin can call out to her mate in a case of extreme distress.  Male dolphins can hear this signal for up to 25 miles underwater.
 
Physical
 
Mating Season: Spring months (generally March and April), though technically dolphins can mate at anytime.
 
Male dolphin reproductive characteristics: Male dolphins have a long and highly flexible penis.  In fact, it is so flexible that if the male wanted, he could use it to wrap around objects (I.E. poles).
 
Female dolphin reproductive characteristics: Female dolphins have a highly muscular vaginal canal.
 
The yiffy experience: Underwater: When a dolphin couple decides to yiff, the female will usually swim underneath the male and allow him to penetrate her from above.  Then, the couple usually mates belly-to-belly (just as non-anthro dolphins do).  Male dolphins usually mate with the same female several times in a short amount of time this way.
 
On land: Male and Female Dolphins have no real yiff preference when they yiff on land, although most of the time they yiff underwater.  When a male yiffs with the female on land, he only yiffs her once, but the experience is longer than each individual experience would be if they were both underwater.
 
Reproductive
 
Male Dolphin
 
> Typical sperm count per yiffy encounter: 1 billion to 3 billion
> Typical "batting average"**: about 25% (underwater), about 40% (on land)***
> Average time needed for recovery between yiffy encounters: 1-3 hours
> Average age of reaching sexual maturity: 12
> Average age of first sexual encounter*: 17
 
Female Dolphins
 
> Average number of egg cells released during yiff (if any): 1 (very rarely 2)
> Average litter size: Almost always just one
> Maximum litter size: 2 (astronomically rare)
> Typical number of litters a female dolphin will give birth to in her lifetime: 5 to 10
> Gestation: About 9 months
> Average age of reaching sexual maturity: 11
> Average age of first sexual encounter*: 17
 
Parental Roles
 
Male Dolphins (Aquatarius-born): Outside of staying with the female for a few months after she first conceives and coming to her aide in an emergency, the male has little or no parental role (mainly by the FEMALE's choice).
 
Male Dolphins (some Vulpes-born): Willing to share parental responsibilty with the females, teaches the calves to hunt and swim faster, etc.
 
Females (all): Females (unless they have a Vulpes-born mate) generally raise the calves on their own, with help from the other females in the group.
 
Overall: Though many male dolphins only seek a mate during the mating season and have little parental role.  All male dolphins, no matter where they were born care for their mates and their calves (he will often mate with the same female over and over again year after year).  Like non-anthro dolphins, Aquatarian dolphins are highly emotional and form strong bonds, regardless of whether the male is a nomad that only comes by for a few months per year or if he's a typical Vulpine male, wanting to raise a family together with his mate.
 
Overall strength of relationships involving nomadic males (on a 0-10 scale*): 7.5
Overall strength of relationships involving Vulpes-born males: 9.5

ONCE THERE, LOOK FOR EPISODE 7-19B.

*:  This evolved from back long before Aquaticus was known to Vulpes, there used to be voracious dolphin-eating sea beasts roaming the waters of Aquaticus.  To protect the females and calves, the males would roam the seas alone getting the beasts to chase after them instead of the females and calves.  In addition, there was added safety in numbers, as is the case for many non-anthro species.  The sea beasts went extinct about 500 years ago, but the behavior remains engrained in most of the male dolphins today.
**: Batting average = approximate amount of sperm cells that make it to a female's fallopian tubes while still having a chance to fertilize any available egg cells.
***: The reason why the male's batting average is higher on land than it is in the water is because on land, the male is able to penetrate deeper and stay in the female longer.
*: Remember, on Vulpes, Vulpines are considered adults at 16.  High school age teens that have not yet reached official adulthood are allowed to yiff as long as the parents of both individuals consent and the couple uses contraception (it is required by law that all 14 and 15 year olds that do yiff between each other to use contraception)
*: Using this scale 0 = Impossible (Male and Female too hostile to be together), 5 = Average, 10 = Inseperable (Male and Female are extremely close and wouldn't want to be apart for any reason...not even death).
