Love & Saucers

about David Huggins

David Huggins started painting his alien encounters in 1987, inspired by Budd Hopkins’s book Intruders: The Incredible Visitations at Copley Woods. He lost his virginity to a female extraterrestrial, when he was 17. Or at least that’s what he tells since 1961, when he was a teenager living on his parents’ farm in rural Georgia. That day, as he was walking through woods near his house, an alien woman appeared and seduced him.

“I am sitting under a tree, and I hear this voice say, ‘David, behind you.’ And I turned around and there is this little hairy guy with large glowing eyes coming straight towards me. I thought it was the bogeyman. I didn’t know what to think of 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,” he says in Love and Saucers, a documentary about him, by filmmaker Brad Abrahams. These visits and his sexual relationship continued into adulthood.

Born in rural Georgia in 1944, when David left his country in the mid 60s for art school in New York City, his alien beings followed him. Nocturnal visits from Crescent — his name for the woman in the woods —, 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.”

According to Brad Abrahams, that of David is art therapy: “It seemed like he was almost going crazy… from not being able to process these experiences that happened to him. What were they? Why him? It really sounded like he was losing his grip on his life and reality. Once he found a way to show his experience to the rest of the world, he was able to process, make sense of, and come to peace with whatever it was that happened to him.”
