This bloke has sex with aliens and then paints his experience

Meet David Huggins, the 74-year-old who claims to get it on with extraterrestrials, then recreates his out of this world encounters in the form of art. Beacause, art.

In a interview with Vice, Huggins reflects on his ongoing relationship with Cresent, his name for the 'woman' he's been pounding in the woods, fathering hundreds of alien babies, and the time he lost his virginity to an alien: 

The coitus in question allegedly went down in 1961, when Huggins was a teenager living on his parents’ farm in rural Georgia. It wasn’t the first time extraterrestrials had appeared to him; he’d been seeing strange creatures since he was eight. But on this day, as he was walking through woods near his house, an alien woman appeared and seduced him.

According to Huggins, these visits from extraterrestrials, and his sexual relationship with them, continued into adulthood.

Once the shock wore off, Huggins says his encounters were weird, but not all that threatening. When he left Georgia in the mid 60s for art school in New York City, the beings followed. Nocturnal visits from Crescent, the ET who deflowered him, became routine. “My relationship with Crescent was warm and friendly. A little strange. What do I mean, a little. Very strange. She was my girlfriend, really,” Huggins says in the film. “A very unconventional relationship,” he adds.

One of the first paintings Huggins ever made was of him and Crescent, having sex. “[The painting’s] not really all that good. She was on top of me, I reach my climax, then she and the insect being leave,” he says. Similar paintings fill his apartment.

Huggins is unnervingly matter-of-fact when he talks about his encounters. It sets him apart from what most of us expect from truthers and UFO enthusiasts. He’s not in it for the notoriety and doesn’t care if anyone believes him. When Huggins talks about fathering hundreds of alien babies—and yes, that’s another facet of his encounters—he sounds about as even-keeled as a farmer explaining crop rotations.

It’s one of the things that drew filmmaker Brad Abrahams to track Huggins down in New Jersey, where he lives now. Abrahams heard Huggins’s story on a podcast about UFOs and the paranormal, and created a documentary about him called Love and Saucers.
