I fell in love with my son

A MAN adopted at birth has confessed to his wife that he fell in love with his own birth mother and had several “mind blowing” sex with her.

The shocking affair between Ben Ford, 32, and his mother Kim West, 51, came to light in 2016 when the couple revealed they were having an incestuous relationship – 30 years after Kim gave up her son for adoption.

The mother and son, from Michigan, described having “incredible and mind-blowing” sex before he was finally forced to confess his true feelings to his wife, Victoria.

In a quest to find his biological family, Ben wrote a letter to Kim before they were reunited in 2014 and their illicit relationship began.

Ben told his wife at the time: “Every time I’ve slept with you since I met her, I imagine that’s her the one I’m kissing, otherwise I can’t play.”

Victoria had previously been suspicious of the couple’s close bond and referred to Kim as a “mom girlfriend”.

But nothing could have prepared her for the shocking news when her husband told her he was leaving her for his own birth mother.

The couple were forced into hiding by a Michigan state law that meant they could face up to 15 years in prison and be on a sex registry for life.

Kim, who grew up in Islington London, became pregnant while studying in California aged 19.

She decided to give the baby up for adoption before returning to the UK, losing contact with the family.

But 30 years later, mother and son will be reunited when Ben sends her a letter – hoping to meet his birth mother.

Neither of them could have known that their first meeting a year later would spark a disturbing affair that would tear their own family apart.

Kim says it was like they “had known each other for years” and she started having sex dreams about her own son.

They both agreed to meet at a hotel and after sharing a bottle of champagne, the couple had their first illicit kiss.

Before long, the couple’s affection for each other turned into incestuous desire, and mother and son began having sex.

I know people will say we’re disgusting…but when you’re hit with such all-consuming love…you gotta fight for it

Just three days after their first sex, Ben revealed the life-changing news to his wife.

She launched into a “hysterical” rant when he announced he had fallen in love with his birth mother and they had “mind blowing” sex on multiple occasions.

Victoria was already uncomfortable with Kim and Ben’s “instant bond” and Kim had grown jealous of Ben’s marriage.

Kim said: “[Victoria] was welcoming, but I couldn’t appreciate it. I felt a growing sense of competition and when Ben touched her, I felt jealousy.

“I became even more aware that she thought I was spending too much time with Ben. She called him constantly when we were together.

“Eventually he admitted that it pained him to spend time with me. ‘She calls you mom girlfriend,’ he said.”


Both Kim and Ben believe that genetic sexual attraction was the reason for their bizarre feelings.

It is a term used to describe an attraction between parents who were not raised together but met as adults.

However, the phenomenon has been described as pseudoscience as there is very little evidence or studies to suggest that people are sexually attracted to those who are genetically similar.

Ben, a computer coder, said: “When I met Kim, I couldn’t think of her as my mother, but rather as a sexual being.

“I had seen a therapist at an adoption support group and had heard of the GSA phenomenon.

Kim, who worked as an interior designer, also said at the time: “It’s not incest, it’s GSA. We’re like peas in a pod and we’re 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 with such all-consuming love that you’re 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 don’t want to give up.”

The couple set out to start a new life in Michigan, planning to marry and even have biological children if they could.

Inbreeding is thought to cause disabilities in children born to parents with a similar genetic makeup.

Conditions such as reduced fertility, facial asymmetry, and limb malformation are all linked to inbreeding.

But the mother and son have since been forced into hiding after fears they could face prosecution over the illegitimate affair.

Their location is currently unknown and it is unclear if the couple are still in a relationship.
