‘I lost my virginity to an extraterrestrial with a very nice body’: Divorced part-time deli worker, 74, who claims he has fathered hundreds of babies with alien lovers after being visited by ‘beings’ since childhood paints his encounters

  • David Huggins, 74, is a divorced father-of-one and part-time deli counter worker in Hoboken, New Jersey 
  • He says his first encounter with an extraterrestrial occurred when he was eight years old, living on his parents’ farm in Georgia
  • Huggins says different types of beings continued to visit him for decades and one female, whom he named Crescent, took his virginity at the age of 17 in the Georgia woods
  • He says he continued a relationship with Crescent and fathered hundreds of babies with her and possibly other females; he says the babies lived ‘there,’ which he calls the beings’ realm
  • Director Brad Abrahams interviewed Huggins, his son, his boss, a neighbor and others for the documentary Love and Saucers
  • Abrahams tells that he believes Huggins is not making anything up, but ‘if it’s something that happened in objective, hard reality … That’s something I don’t know the answer to’
  • Huggins says ‘I have never asked anyone to believe a word I say, because I know I can never prove it’ but he hopes that the film prompts dialogue and opens people’s minds

David Huggins, a 74-year-old deli counter worker in New Jersey, found himself in the arms of a woman five or six months ago who was not altogether unfamiliar. She was, as he calls them, a ‘being,’ an extraterrestrial from a community of aliens who have been visiting him since he was eight years old.

His recent intimate encounter with the woman took place ‘there,’ as he describes the vague and inexplicable ‘other’ realm he has visited with these beings. Before he knew it, he says matter-of-factly, he woke up again in his bed in Hoboken.

Huggins – a divorced father-of-one – calmly and methodically relates the incident to with the same level of detail and pragmatism that he exhibits in Love and Saucers, a documentary detailing his extraordinary claims. But his experience this year with that being is far from his most significant encounter with the extraterrestrials over the past seven decades; he lost his virginity to one at the age of 17, he claims, and says he fathered hundreds of ‘being’ over the years – babies who have remained ‘there’ and with whom he has no contact.

Huggins, who is originally from Georgia, says that he lost his virginity to a female ‘being’ in the woods when he was just 17

‘You’re immediately disarmed by how down-to-earth and normal he seems,’ says director Brad Abrahams, who first heard about Huggins in a podcast which mentioned him in a throwaway comment about how fantastical the claims were. ‘He’s from small-town Georgia in the 1950s, and sort of softly spoken, simply spoken, doesn’t really muse on things, just tells you very matter-of-factly the most ridiculous or surreal of claims.

‘And hearing these things come out of the mouth of someone who seems so, so normal and sobering, the way he talks about it is a real dichotomy. Like I said, it disarms you and it leaves you open to actually just listening to him as another human being, not – as one might think – of a quack or a charlatan or someone who’s unbalanced. Because right away you see that he’s not, and you just tend to take him more seriously and the story more seriously.’

Huggins, who lives in a three-story home in Hoboken filled with more than a hundred paintings he’s done depicting his otherworldly experiences, tells that he hopes the film sparks a dialogue and encourages viewers to think more openly. He believes hundreds of thousands – or even millions – of people around the world have also had similar encounters, particularly when they were children.

David Huggins, 74, has painted more than 100 works depicting his experiences with otherworldly ‘beings’ – including a woman he calls Crescent, with whom he says he has fathered hundreds of children

‘I hope people will think seriously about it,’ he tells ‘I have never asked anyone to believe a word I say, because I know I can never prove it … I hope that you’ll think about it.’

The film mostly features Huggins at home as he relates the history of his ‘being’ experiences and shows off his paintings. It also interviews everyone from Huggins’ adult son and neighbors to his boss at the Hoboken delicatessen and a religious studies expert.

Similarly to Huggins, Abrahams says he hopes people, after viewing the film, come away ‘listening, not judging … learning something about consciousness or humanity or just … walking away with more enriching experiences on the human condition.

‘I don’t necessarily want people to come away believing in aliens; that wasn’t my intention,’ Abrahams says. ‘It was more to walk away believing David, believing that he had some kind of experience.’

He tells ‘I can say unequivocally that I don’t believe David is making anything up, that he believes what happened to him was real – but if it’s something that happened in objective, hard reality, or if a member of the public was there with him, would they see what he saw? That’s something I don’t know the answer to.’

According to Huggins, his first sighting of a ‘being’ happened during his childhood in rural Georgia, where he lived with his parents and two siblings.

‘Nobody in my family seemed to see what I was seeing,’ he says in the documentary. ‘My first encounter was when I was eight years old. I was playing at the base of a tree, and I hear this voice say, “David, behind you.” And I turned around and there’s this little hairy guy with large glowing eyes coming straight towards me. I thought it was the bogey man. I didn’t know what to think of it.

‘What’s interesting was that for a split second, I felt as if I was in his eyes looking at me. Then I just freaked and I ran to the barn, and I glance back and the little hairy guy was turning around and going back into the woods. The eyes were just glowing, is the best way to put it.’

The encounters continued from there as Huggins spotted ‘beings’ of different forms; he speaks of an insect-like creature and others he calls ‘little greys,’ which seemed to him to be workers. And then there were the females, whom he draws as slender, with the bodies of human women and narrow faces marked by large, mesmerizing eyes. One of these women, whom he eventually named Crescent, would create a milestone in Huggins’ life when he was 17.

I was walking in the woods, and I see a woman sitting under a tree – and she gets up and she starts coming towards me,’ he explains in the film. ‘I become very aroused sexually; I couldn’t get my pants down fast enough. I fall back on the ground and I’m lying there and she’s looking at me, and I reach my climax, which was quite painful, actually; it was very intense. And then I’m looking in her eyes and I pass out … Virginity lost.’

He continued his relationship with the beings and Crescent, even after his move at 19 to New York City. At times he even visited ‘there,’ the space or realm occupied by the extraterrestrials, he claims.
