I was boating in the Santa Barbara channel last weekend and we came 
across two pods of literally hundreds of playful dolphins.  They raced 
toward the boat as we approached and then swam alongside, clearly for 
the enjoyment of it. My understanding is that dolphins copulate even 
when the female is not in estrus, "for the social bonding benefits", and 
sometimes up to seven times in a day.
