This abduction predates the Betty and Barney Hill encounter by four years. However, this story didn't surface until about the same time as the Hill case and was overshadowed by it. It is not well known outside UFO circles but it seems to be making the rounds again. It is also an extremely strange story. I remember reading about it way back then. I may not have believed it, but it stuck in my mind.
In 1957, 23 year old Antonio Villas Boas was a Brazilian farmer by trade. For several nights he and his brother had seen strange lights in the sky with one coming so close to their home that they had to close the shutters on the windows to keep the light out. Antonio was ploughing a field alone one night to avoid the heat of the day, when suddenly a UFO approached and landed near him. His tractor had died so he tried to run for it. Several small humanoid creatures captured him and took him into the saucer.
The creatures wore some kind of tight fitting full length outfits and soft helmets which covered all but their eyes. Lenses may have distorted the appearance of their eyes which seemed tiny with a blue tint to them.
His clothing was removed and some kind of liquid was applied to his entire body. He was then led into another room where there appeared to an examining table. Two creatures removed a small amount of blood from his chin and left. From vents in the wall he noticed puffs of smoke or vapour that made him sick to his stomach, after vomiting he felt a little better.
Now in walks a completely naked woman with hair so blonde it was almost white. She had elongated blue eyes and very pale skin with a concentration of freckles on her arms. She had high cheekbones, normal nose and a mouth with thin, almost non-existent lips, and a very pointed chin. Her underarm and pubic hair was almost blood red. She had the most beautiful body that Boas had ever seen.
She didn't speak, but through body language she let it be known that she was going to have her way with him, he did not seem unwilling. They had sexual intercourse twice and then she pushed him away. As she did this she pointed to her belly, smiled as best she could with her thin lips, pointed to the sky, and then left the room. Boas became fearful thinking this meant she wanted to take him away, but obviously it meant she was going to have his baby somewhere out among the stars. He was then given a quick tour of the ship by the creatures and released. He watched as the craft shot off skyward.
Any one can see why this event didn't make headlines around the globe. It's just too bloody unbelievable. Just some hot blooded Brazilian boy's sexual fantasy. Actually, his story remained untold for quite some time; it was only relayed to a Brazilian UFO researcher after some urging by Boas' doctor, who was treating him for symptoms of what appeared to be radiation poisoning. Antonio Villas Boas died in 1992 never having made a cent off his experience.
As laughable as this case is, it doesn't stand alone in UFO legend. Here are two more examples of a newer vintage.
(1) John E. Mack, M.D. writes of a fellow known as Ed, who started to consciously remember an abduction experience from thirty years earlier when he was a teenager. He recalls being floated aboard a ship where he encountered a woman with black eyes that had no pupils or irises, and thin blonde hair. He remembers being extremely attracted to her to the point of having an erection. He then went on to have sexual intercourse with her which included foreplay. However, when placed under hypnosis a much different story unfolds. It seems that instead of his fantasized love match, a machine was placed over his penis that caused arousal and ejaculation. Afterwards he was told by his abductors that his sperm would be used for ”special babies" and for "work we're doing to help the people on your planet." Ed felt manipulated but otherwise unaffected.
(2) Budd Hopkins, a noted abduction researcher wrote of several such experiences. All are abductions with forced sexual intercourse. Hopkins just briefly touches on this one but I consider it the most important. A policeman had a similar abduction and forced intercourse experience, the exception being that the female he was mated with was far from human. She looked just like a classic grey alien. This was so horrifying to the man that he basically begged Hopkins to tell him that his experience wasn't real. Budd agreed with him just to ease his mind, but feared the worst. This hardened cop was obviously terrified and traumatized by the experience.
As you can see, all three cases have the common thread of UFO abduction, alien creatures, and sexual intercourse. But there the similarity ends. In the first case, which is seemingly the most absurd, Boas was an eager participant and had sex with what he considered a beautiful woman. Ed, in the second case seemed rather nonchalant about the whole situation, he thought he had had a sexual liaison, but had been duped by the aliens. The third case left the policeman absolutely horrified about his experience.
The vast majority of abducted men have little problem admitting that sperm samples were taken during an abduction using some kind of mechanical device. On the other hand, most men would never be able to let it be known that they had been raped by a woman that didn't even look human. Trust me, it's a macho thing.
Male abductees report this miraculous machine somehow causes them to be aroused enough to cause an ejaculation, which is then neatly scooped up by the same. I admit that this device probably really exists, but I wonder if the stimulation to cause arousal is not forced onto the abductee by the alien's very special brand of mind control.
Anyone the least familiar with the abduction experience has heard the rumours of female humans becoming impregnated by the aliens through some sort of artificial insemination. A month or two later, they become, for lack of a better word, unpregnant. That is, the fetus just simply isn’t there anymore. Speculation is that the aliens have re-abducted the victim and removed the fetus to be incubated in one of their nurseries. This phenomenom has been reported many times over the years and has even happened to virgins. I'm not talking about dream sequences here, I'm talking about woman that have been diagnosed by medical doctors as being pregnant, upon their return for a regular checkup there is no sign of them having ever been pregnant, nor is there any evidence of them suffering a miscarriage.
Basically, what I'm getting at in the above paragraph is this: If the aliens are so technically and medically advanced that they can artificially inseminate human women, then remove the extremely premature fetus to be brought to full term in an incubator, then why can they not artificially inseminate their own females, whether they be alien or hybrids? The answer is, they should be able to accomplish this with no problem.
If this is so, then there would be no need for the aliens to introduce a hybrid or alien female into the abduction room for forced intercourse with a human male to produce offspring. An extracted sperm sample inserted into the female alien artificially would produce the needed results. Therefore, forced intercourse makes absolutely no sense, no matter how you slice it. Artificial insemination would also eliminate the possibility of the male being sterile and wasting a perfectly good abduction.
One of the talents the aliens have is the ability to induce images into a victim's mind to make him, or her, believe that they are seeing things that are not really there. It seems they use this mostly for the purpose of tricking the abductee into thinking they're in more friendly surroundings, this allows the abduction to go more smoothly. Since they are so good at this, I wonder if there ever was a woman involved in the abduction at all. Perhaps through imagery the aliens have induced the victim to believe he's actually having a sexual encounter with a female.
I can think of two possible reasons that for the aliens to do such a thing:
1. To observe the emotional and/or physical reactions of a human during the sex act. This is a possibility since the aliens do love to play with our emotions.
2. If the male cannot be properly aroused by the alien's usual methods to cause an ejaculation, then the added stimulus of the victim believing he is performing a real sexual act with a woman may aid in the in a more positive outcome in getting the sample.
This leads me to the conclusion that there was never a female, human, alien, hybrid, or otherwise, ever involved at all in any of these abductions. I believe that it was all illusion induced by the aliens into the victim's mind. However, not everyone is equally susceptible to the power of suggestion.
In the first case it would seem Boas was highly susceptible and had a great old time. He accepted everything he saw and felt without question.
In case two, it would seem that Ed was given a post-hypnotic suggestion to think that he had had a sexual encounter while abducted. Although it took thirty years for this memory to come to the surface, he remembered it without hypnosis. Perhaps the aliens realized that Ed would sometime later recall his experience and it would be better if he remembered a pleasant experience rather than a frightening abduction. Of course, the aliens had no reason to believe that Ed would be later hypnotized and recall his true experience.
The third case, which kind of ties it up for me, involves a police officer. Cops are rigorously trained not to be gullible. They are taught to deal with hard facts and indisputable evidence. Policemen subscribe to the old saying, believe only half of what you see and none of what you hear. It is conceivable that this very training was enough to prevent the aliens from inducing false visions into his mind. He saw both the event and the creature for what they were, hideous. But yet he says he saw the female alien right on top of him. Well, perhaps in cases like this, one of the aliens actually sits on top of the human to enhance the situation. If so, then through illusion, the victim is supposed to see the alien as a rather attractive lady while the machine hums away doing it's job in the background. A very devious but effective means of attaining what they want.

Bill Chalker, Hair of the Alien: DNA and other forensic evidence of alien abduction
This is what purports to be the full story of Peter Khoury and his alleged alien hair. For those who don’t know this story, Peter Khoury is an Australian abductee who claimed that while off work with a head injury received during an assault at work, he came home after driving his wife to work one day in July 1992 and fell asleep. He was woken up with a strange naked blonde woman crouching on his chest, and another Asian-looking woman in the room. The blonde dragged his head towards her breast, whereupon he bit her nipple off, which didn’t seem to hurt her, but miffed the two so much that they promptly vanished. All of this seems to have taken place in some kind of out-of-the-body experience in which Khoury viewed himself from outside. Feeling that something rubbery was in his mouth, Khoury got up for a drink of water, after which he went to the toilet, and found urinating painful. Unrolling his foreskin he found a hair tightly wrapped around his penis. He carefully removed this and placed it in a plastic sachet in his office.
He seems to have kept this sample for years, telling some people about it in late August 1992 and telling Bill Chalker, whom he had known since 1993, about this incident almost exactly four years later in July 1996. At some time in 1998 Chalker came into contact with an “invisible college” of biochemists, and in late 1998 and early 1999 they undertook a study of the mitochondrial (mt) DNA.
These results have proved to be controversial, but the one absolute certainty which emerged, assuming that the analysis was valid, was that this was not alien. There was not a trace of exotic organic compound which was not quite DNA, or even DNA having no genetic relationship to any terrestrial organism. No, what this examination showed was that the hair was human. What was unusual about it was that a blonde, apparently European, hair had a Mt DNA profile of a minority Chinese line. The so-called expert biochemists make much of this, arguing that the possessor of such a profile must be a dark haired “Mongolian Chinese”. This doesn’t follow at all; MtDNA traces only one genealogical line, that of your mother’s mother’s mother’s mother’s mother, back many generations. Now it is not unknown for someone with one European parent and one Asian to have fair hair. If the last Chinese ancestor was say a 4× great-grandmother, there she would be contributing 1/64 of the gene line. If all your other 4× great-grandparents were fair haired, then odds on so are you. Of course the last Chinese ancestor could have been a 6, 8, 10, 20, 30, 50 greats-grandmother; still her MtDNA would be preserved though her genes were making next to no general contribution.
For example though both Princess Diana and her son Prince William are both fair, there are grounds for believing their MtDNA will be Indian.
To add to the confusion the “invisible college” claimed later to have undertaken a second test. Whereas the first test was taken from the hair shaft, this next was done on a sample from the soft hair root. This is claimed to show MtDNA from an Irish/Gaelic/Basque background. Clearly people can’t have two mothers so there is something very dodgy here. Explanations might include that this is a composite hair from a wig made of human hair, that one or both samples are contaminated, that the root sample is actually nuclear and not MtDNA, that there is something wrong with the whole study procedure. Only if all these were eliminated would there be more exotic possibilities, such as a very rare example of leaked paternal MtDNA (of which a case has been reported in the medical literature), or someone with a hair transplant.
If the actual MtDNA sample is indeed Irish, Scots or whatever and the Asian profile is due to contamination or misreading, then the mystery disappears, as there are plenty of Australians with such a background. The presence of Asian strains in MtDNA and Y chromosomes from people in Scandinavia has also been reported.
Of course one way to clarify all of this is for the hair to be independently tested. There are a growing number of laboratories which undertake DNA genealogy who would be just the organisations to do this. Independent study of the procedures used by the “invisible college” would also be needed.
The reader might wonder what to make of all this. Initially, like most people I had assumed that the claim was that the hair was a pubic hair acquired during sexual intercourse, and that if that was demonstrated Khoury’s story might be a confused memory of a real sexual encounter, possibly with sex workers. This raised the predictable howl of protest when I raised it on UFO UpDates. This is becoming rather academic however, for also on UpDates I got from Chalker the revelation that this was assumed to be a head hair (much easier to come by than a pubic one), they really hadn’t eliminated a hair from a wig, and most astonishing of all they had not conducted any tests to determine whether this was female or male hair!
A revelation in this book makes this even more academic, because it now transpires that in about April-May 1992 Khoury had told another version of his story to two Australian ufologists; in this case the event dated back to about November 1991, the Asian woman was the one straddling him, etc. Faced with this, Chalker twists all ways to try to avoid the obvious conclusion, eventually suggesting that this is a separate event which Khoury had somehow forgotten.
At this point we should perhaps have a little time line:
1. c. November 1991: First date of the claimed meeting with the two women.
2. November 1991: PK turns up at the inaugural meeting of UFOR(NSW). He tells about an alleged 1988 abduction (which seems to be a classic example of sleep paralysis). He becomes their abduction expert but finds them sceptical.
3. 17 March 1992: His sister in law is murdered, allegedly by a lover who committed suicide.
4. c. Mid April 1992: He gives an interview about his alleged 1991 experience.
5. 13 May 1992: He receives severe head injuries in a brawl at work (PK was a construction worker).
6. 23 July 1992: Second date for encounter with women, and allegedly finds hair.
7. 13 August 1992: He allegedly tells his wife about the incident.
8. September 1992: He tells Jamie Leonard, a colleague in the UFO group.
9. October 1992: Budd Hopkins visits.
10. 6 December 1992: Khoury and Leonard set up a support group.
11. 28 February 1993: He tells support group about hair, gets little support.
12. c. April 1993: Leonard leaves support group, claiming unhealthy dynamics; Khoury resigns a year later.
The reader will note it is at this point that Khoury enters the orbit of Bill Chalker, though it is not for another three years until he reveals the story about the hair and that this is not analysed until 1998/9.
One of the arguments which believers in Khoury come up with is how to explain how this hair got wrapped around Khoury’s penis. There is no real reason to answer this, because there is no actual evidence that this hair was ever there, only Khoury’s assertion that it was. There seems little actual proof that the supposed hair seen by Leonard in 1992 was the same as that analysed in 1998/9; there is simply no unbroken provenance at all. It looks as though Khoury changed his story to fit round a sample he got hold of. There might be some evidence that this really is a composite, because Khoury’s story included a reference to a second, smaller hair, maybe a backup story if inconsistencies were found in the story, which due to the credulity of the investigators was never needed?
The most generous interpretation of this story might be that Khoury had some sort of genuine extraordinary experiences centred around sleep paralysis and hypnopompic hallucinations and had got hold of the hair to provide evidence against his critics in the local UFO group. I am not entirely convinced that this is necessarily the whole story, however.
Despite Chalker’s claim that he has the backing of an “invisible college” of credentialed and published scientists, evidence for this is hard to come by. The so-called scientific report is an absurd document. Clearly there are parts which are of a technical nature I’m not qualified to comment on, but the strange use of language, the lack of understanding of the difference between mt and nuclear DNA, and above all the ridiculous anti-evolutionary posturing and ancient astronaut style speculation are suggestive of someone either fundamentally ignorant, or someone pursuing some personal agenda. At first thought, this looks like a classical creationist agenda, but I am not sure that a fundamentalist Christian would endorse the actual details. It looks more like some curious UFO-related cult; the interest in genetics and aliens seeding humans sounds rather like the Raelians, while the ancient astronaut speculations suggest the Sitchinists. This will remain speculation so long as these people hide behind anonymity. It seems reasonable to work on the assumption that those who hide behind anonymity are those with something to hide.
Needless to say, any suggestion that stories like this need to be rigorously and critically investigated using the techniques of private detectives or investigative reporters meets with the expected howls of derision by Chalker and fellow ufologists whose childlike credulity over this case is painful to behold. In this subject failure to work under the maxims, believe nothing, trust no-one and keep your wallet tightly shut can only lead to absurdity.
I have not commented on the other wonder stories with which this book is padded out, because they add nothing much to the corpus of wonder stories we already possess. One story, however, of a contactee-cum-abductee from 1971, would, if the notes made about it could be proved to come from 1971, show how contactees were transforming themselves into abductees and that some of the modern motifs of baby farming were present at an earlier time.
