An unexpected report on a mother-son sexual relationship attracted the attention of the public when the couple claimed that incest was a normal phenomenon.

Kim West, 51, put his son for adoption almost 30 years ago. However, the mother-son duo met again three years ago after which they realised they were made for each other. The man from Colorado left his wife to marry his biological mother and bear children together. “This is not incest. It is [Genetic Sexual Attraction] GSA,” the mother told the New Day news outlet. “We are like 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,” West added.

According to The Telegraph UK, GSA is a condition where a person gets sexually attracted to his or her biological relatives, including parents, siblings, offspring, etc. This occurs when biologically related people meet for the first time. After going through West and son Ben Ford’s case, many people might criticise the couple but it has been difficult for those people to control their feelings or change it.

UK-based West gave up her son, Ford, for adoption around 30 years ago. However, in 2013, Ford wished to meet his real mother and hence he contacted her. Following their conversation on the phone for some time, they decided to meet and it was then when they started falling for each other. According to Christian News, Ford confessed in front of his wife, Victoria, and said that he has stopped feeling for her and was now in a relationship with his “mummy girlfriend.”

In a statement to British newspaper New Day, the couple is planning to marry and have kids together. “It’s a once in a lifetime chance and something Ben and I are not willing to walk away from,” West said.
