Michigan, United States — Ben Ford, a 32-year-old man from Michigan, was given up for adoption by his biological mother 51-year-old Kim West 32 years ago. Wanting to find out more about his birth parents, Mr. Ford tracked down Ms. West, and now the two say they are in love and want to have children.
It all started with a simple phone call which then turned into a series of long conversations in 2013. Then upon being reunited a year later in 2014, the mother-and-son couple both admit that they felt an instant sexual attraction towards one another. Ford then left his wife, after telling her that he was in love — with his own mother. Shortly after, Ford and his mother-lover took their relationship to the next level by meeting in a hotel where they shared their first kiss over a bottle of champagne, and had “incredible and mind-blowing sex”.
Since first being featured on The Mirror, the story has sparked a tidal wave of responses on social media. While most are insisting that the unusual couple is committing incest, the pair says what they are experiencing is a natural-biological, often-misunderstood phenomenon called “Genetic Sexual Attraction”, more commonly referred to as GSA.
Miss West said, “This is not incest, it is GSA. We are like two peas in a pod and 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. ”, according to the story by The Mirror.
Law enforcement authorities in the couple’s home state of Michigan disagree with that sentiment and say that the mother could face up to 15 years in prison. Incest in Michigan is illegal, and committing such an act is a felony according to Michigan’s penal code Section 750.520b. The code also contains a special provision allowing the judge to hand life terms in prison for those convicted of committing such an act.
