Based on the idea of sex-starved sailors who would see manatees frequently and eventually they began to see them as mermaids.

It was also used in the TV show How I Met Your Mother.
Guy 1: "So you're going to be rooming with a chick next year? watch out for the mermaid effect, if you hang out with her long enough, you know you'll end up wanting to hit that."

Guy 1: "I give it three months."
