If anything I would say they are more like aquatic (in before rage) sergals. They are playful but, in their own way, they are quite savage. Rival animals, including other dolphins, are subject to torture.
And by the way, dolphin snatch is as as deadly as dolphin penis - they can grip you with it and pull you under.
An excerpt pertaining to dolphin raep, harassment, and destruction:
>The activities and fates of 29 lone, sociable dolphins are well
documented (Table 3). More than two-thirds were males (17/25
whose sex was known), and slightly more than half were immatures
(15/28 whose age was estimated). Most were reported to
have near-daily interactions with humans and infrequent interactions
with conspecifics. One lone, sociable dolphin was locally
acclaimed for ‘saving’ a drowning boy (‘Flipper’); however,
others achieved notoriety for ‘abducting’ people who then had
to be saved by boat (e.g. ‘Donald’, ‘Percy’). At least 13 dolphins
had periods of mis-directed sexual behaviour towards humans,
buoys, and/or vessels, and approximately two-thirds (at least 18)
directed aggressive behaviour towards humans. Dolphin-to-human
aggression sometimes resulted in such serious human
injury as unconsciousness, a ruptured spleen, and broken ribs,
(e.g. ‘Donald’, an unnamed dolphin from Florida Keys) or even
death (‘Tiao’). At least eight dolphins were reported to cause
damage to human property, primarily vessels and fishing gear.
Aggression, damage to human property, and/or disruption of
fishing operations resulted in conflict with local people in several
cases (e.g. ‘JoJo’, ‘Nudgy’, ‘Percy’). Although the focus of this
review is the welfare of cetaceans, it is important to note the risks
for humans because inappropriate behaviour with humans has
often had disastrous outcomes for lone, sociable cetaceans.
Dolphins are pretty awesome.
