Invented by British soldiers in Burma during the war, shark-jacking provided hardened troops with a highly effective method to blow off steam between battles. Blowing off steam by having sex with natives was not an option due to their unshakable conservative stance against premarital and extramarital sex. This recreational activity especially appealed to brits that did not like playing soccer. "They would swim out to a shark-infested area of the Indian Ocean and would lure these deadly creatures to them by having meat tied around their ankles. When the shark approached, the three 'sleepers' would wrestle the shark into submission and the 'baiter' would manually stimulate the shark.
Far more likely (and less risky) to have been a dolphin. There have been US prosecutions of people accused of sexual shenanigans with cetaceans, and at least one UK newspaper scandal that I don't think was actually presented to Their Worships.

The worker did and immediately FBI agents came out of nowhere and put him in cuffs.The charge?

It was in a tv documentary about trying to teach dolphins to talk, although I recall she stopped short of admitting full relationship, but some newspapers took it further.
