"This is not incest, it is GSA. We are like peas in a pod'

08 April 2016, 17:23

Nairobi – A mother who reunited with her son after giving him up for adoption 30 years ago has claimed that their new found love is not incest.

According to Standard Media the ‘couple’ are even trying for a baby.

Kim West, 51 and Ben Ford, 32 have insisted that they sex life is ‘incredible’ and plan on getting married.

They claim their incestuous relationship should be referred to a ‘Genetic Sexual Attraction’ instead.

Their reunion was over a letter Ben sent his mother living in the USA in 2013.

Ben then married divorced his wife in order to his mother who claimed to start having sexy dreams but was reassured after Kim consulted the and found others like them.

"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,” Kim said.

According to Alternet, Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) is a term used to describe intense, almost obsessive romantic and sexual feelings that estranged relatives often feel for each other upon reunion.

GSA which is considered a major taboo was coined by Barbara Gonyo in 1980 who herself felt attracted to her estranged son. According to The Richest GSA is reported to happen in 50% of reunion cases between adults separated by early adoption.
