The mother and son had been in a relationship since 2014 and have ‘incredible and mind-blowing’ sex.
A mom who recently reunited with her son after giving him up for adoption 30 years ago says that now they are in love and want to have a baby together. Kim west, 51 and her son Ben Ford, 32, at present live in Michigan and have been together in a relationship since 2014.
Kim west who was born and brought up in London became pregnant at the age of 19 when she was studying in California and gave birth to Ben Ford and later gave him up for adoption.
West came back to UK after her son was adopted and her relationship didn’t work out. In December 2013, she received a letter from Ford who was looking to find his biological parents.
In January 2014, they met and it was then that they realised that they were sexually attracted to each other. At that time, Ford was living in Colorado with his wife, Victoria.
Ford later separated from his wife and has been in relationship with his mother for the past two years. They at present live in Michigan and describe their relationship as ‘Genetic Sexual Attraction’.
Genetic sexual attraction is a seldom-talked about phenomenon that occurs between adoptees and their long-lost parents. The term was coined in the US in the late 1980s by Barbara Gonyo, the founder of Truth Seekers In Adoption, a Chicago-based support group for adoptees and their new-found relatives.
This is not incest, it is GSA. We are like peas in a pod and are meant to be together. I know people will say we’re disgusting, that we should be able to control our feelings, but when you’re hit by a love so consuming you are willing to give up everything for it, you have to fight for it. It’s a once in a lifetime chance and something Ben and I are not willing to walk away from.” West, who is an interior designer told New Day.
When Ford and West decided to meet after she received his letter, they met and the couple shared their first kiss after they had a bottle of champagne in a hotel.
Ford then decided to leave his wife and moved to Michigan with his mother, where they met with another GSA couple.
When I met Kim, I couldn’t think of her as my mum but instead as a sexual being. I had seen a therapist at an adoption support group and had learnt about the GSA phenomenon,” Ford told New Day’s Alley Einstein.
The couple now wants to marry and is even trying to have a baby together. They are also open to surrogacy if they are unable to have a biological child.
As incest is illegal in the state of Michigan, the couple is willing to move to another state.
