A randy dolphin is looking for love in all the wrong places in the waters off the Cayman Islands.

He's been getting frisky with divers in the area, and now he's been caught on video.

The recent encounter with "Stinky" the dolphin was filmed by Michael Maes, an underwater videographer based on Grand Cayman Island, The Huffington Post reported.

The video, posted to Maes' YouTube page, shows the lonesome dolphin circling and trying to "ride" Maes before turning to Maes' friend.

Stinky is then seen rubbing his body along the other diver's back before trying to roll him over.

Maes said he posted the video, which is going viral with more than 102,000 views as of Monday afternoon, to show the dangers of lone dolphins like Stinky who are looking for a mate.

"It remains a wild animal and Stinky is in an awkward situation which can turn him into a playful killer-machine," he wrote on his YouTube page. "Please be prudent people and get out of the water when you see him. Believe me, if he decides, you don't stand the slightest chance!"

Cayman Islands TV station CITN posted a poll on its site asking viewers whether the government should try to stop Stinky's advances.

Fifty-one percent of viewers said no, 33 percent said yes and 8 percent said they didn't know or they didn't care.
