A British mother says she’s passionately in love with the son she gave up for adoption 32 years ago.
In a story published by UK daily newspaper The New Day, 51-year-old Kim West describes sex with her son Ben Ford as “mind-blowing” and “incredible” — but insists their relationship isn’t incestual.
Instead, she says, she and her son are affected by a condition known as “Genetic Sexual Attraction,” whereby separated biological family members find themselves attracted to each other when they meet as adults.
According to The New Day, Kim fell pregnant while studying in California as a 19-year-old.
She gave baby Ben up for adoption soon after the birth, and he grew up in the US while Ms West returned to the her native UK.
Then in December 2013, computer coder Ford -- by this stage married and based in Michigan -- decided to locate his biological mother.
He reached out to Kim, and the pair started to exchange letters and phone calls. Eventually, in 2014, Ben decided to visit.
The sexual chemistry was almost instantaneous, Ms West tells The New Day. She says she invited Ben to a hotel room, where the pair pair shared champagne -- and their first kiss.
Soon after that they had sex, and just three days after that Mr Ford told his wife of two years he was leaving her.
