Ever since the book’s first publishing 1999, The Abduction Enigma has ruffled more than a few feathers by tackling sexuality in the alien abduction experience. Authors Kevin D. Randle, Russ Estes, and William P. Cone note that although sex and sexuality are a taboo subject—especially in cases of alleged alien abduction—gay men and women make up a remarkable portion of the abduction population.
A very high percentage of both male and female abductees that we interviewed openly stated a sexual preference of homosexuality [at least 29%] or bisexuality [23%]. An equally high number were hypersexual and highly promiscuous in their human sex lives. Of the remaining abductees at least half of them claimed they had no sex drive whatsoever. That leaves us with a very low number of abductees who claim to have what would be considered a ‘normal’ sex life.
Their statistical analysis never originally intended to delve into bedroom manners. According to Randle:
It wasn’t a question of sitting down to decide to talk about homosexuality, but an outgrowth of the interview process. Russ Estes had asked about the gender of the alien creatures. He was told, by the females, that most of the abductors were male, but that the leaders seemed to be female. In early discussions, as these distinctions were being made, Estes asked the natural follow-up question which revealed the pattern of gender identity. Once the preliminary observation had been made, the question about sexual orientation, as an outgrowth of an attempt to learn the gender of the alien creatures, was added to the survey.
Another forgotten case from California followed repeated abduction claims by a lesbian couple spanning several decades focused around their home in Tujunga Canyon.
