Love and Saucers
March 2, 2018 – Some people paint for the love of craft or to capture the beauty of the world. 72-year-old David Huggins paints to capture a different kind of beauty – the loss of his virginity and ongoing sexual relationship with a female extra-terrestrial.
Huggins, the subject of filmmaker Brad Abrahams new documentary “Love and Saucers” is a frank portrayal of a man trying to comprehend that his girlfriend whom he calls “Crescent” lives on another planet. And he’s proud to show you her full length nude portrait or “First Time,” his painting of their consummation in the Georgian woods in 1961.
“When I was 17, I lost my virginity to a female extraterrestrial,” the Huggins says in Love and Saucers. “That’s all I can say about it. I thought, if anything, I’d be losing it in the backseat of a Ford—something like that. But it didn’t work out that way.”
It doesn’t get any clearer than that. We think.
Huggins, who grew up on a farm in Georgia, alleges that he was contacted several times as a child by aliens, including a small hairy being with glowing eyes and a praying mantis type insect. It was the woman “Crescent” that seduced him in his teens.
When he moved to New York City to attend art school, his nightly conjugal visits from his alien girlfriend continued. But it wasn’t until reading a book by Budd Hopkins, an artist and UFO believer, that Huggins remembered vivid details of his relationship and led him to paint the experiences. Filmmaker Abrahams believes it serves as art therapy as it brings a release for Huggins.
He currently has a collection of over 100 paintings dealing with all manners of his encounters.
As reported by Vice, Huggins shared his thoughts on why aliens reached out to him.
“I have a feeling that tens of millions of people, perhaps hundreds of millions, have had [similar] experiences. Mainly as children. That’s all I can really say, but I think as children we are so open to things, that these beings can appear to us. I know I never closed up on it, because it has continued through my whole life.”
