Suzanne Somers, 73, and her 83 yo husband get shots to have sex twice a day

Suzanne Somers is 73 and has been married to her 83-year-old husband, Alan Hamel, for 43 years. The last time we heard anything about Suzanne (we linked it, we didn’t cover it) she was posing in her birthday suit, for her birthday. The photo was taken by her husband. Apparently the spark has not gone out of their marriage at all. Suzanne told The Daily Mail that she and her husband get shots once a week of some peptide and that it puts them in the mood to have sex twice a day. They’re also both on hormone replacements. Ok. Suzanne has multiple health and wellness books out including a new one coming in January.

Suzanne Somers is lifting the lid on her active sex life and the ‘sex shot’ that keeps her and her producer husband Alan Hamel tearing off each other’s clothes twice a day after nearly 43 years of marriage.

For decades, the actress, 73, has hailed bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as her fountain of youth. Now, her love-making sessions with Alan, 83, are getting a boost with shots of PT-141, a melanocortin based peptide used to generate sexual arousal.

‘I’m kind of in that groove, like when you were younger and you’re in the mood all the time, and so is he because he’s on hormone replacements,’ she told

Suzanne and Alan take bioidentical hormones, or hormones made from plants, to replace whatever their bodies are lacking, according to their lab work.

The ThighMaster icon added shots of PT-141 to their routine after learning it is a ‘sexual stimulant that works on your brain.’

‘I thought, “Wow, what a great thing.” Because men have had Viagra, but this is actually a shot for both men and women that’s not a drug,’ she explained.

‘It just stimulates that part of your brain that says, “Hey, I’m kind of in the mood.” And, so, isn’t that a wonderful thing? And it’s not a drug, so I love it.’

The Three’s Company star said she and Alan take a shot of PT-141 about once a week, and while many of their contemporaries can barely get out of bed, they’re having sex twice a day.

‘I usually say I sleep through one of them. That’s usually that one at 4 o’clock in the morning,’ she joked. ‘But, you know, then again around 8 o’clock in the morning, I’m in the mood.’

It doesn’t hurt that Suzanne and Alan have had a magnetic connection since the moment they first met in a television studio 50 years ago.

‘Oh, he’s just so beautiful,’ she gushed. ‘I had sex with him on our very first date just in case there wasn’t a second one. I just wanted to be with him that first time.’

Her fears were unfounded, as they ended up getting married and merging their two families while continuing to have plenty of sex. Suzanne has a son, Bruce, with her first husband Bruce Somers, while Alan has a son, Stephen, and a daughter, Leslie, with his ex-wife Marilyn Hamel…

‘I feel the older I get, the better it is for my brand because I’m living the life I write about,’ she told ‘I’m living this great love affair, and I walk my talk. So the older I get, the better it is because people go, “Well, look what she’s done.”‘

Good for them and it’s nice to hear about an older couple who is still hot for each other after decades. I think when I get to that age I’ll be happy with like twice a week, you know? Also on the occasions I’ve had sex twice a day I’ve gotten sore, I’ll say that. You can do that in the beginning of a relationship but indefinitely and consecutively is too much. It’s like eating dessert all day. It is so good in the moment and I would totally do that if it didn’t make me feel awful afterwards. All that said, where can I get this stuff? Does it really work or does it have more of a placebo effect? *googles* It’s supposed to work! Ok not regretting I covered this.

There’s more in there about Suzanne choosing to continue to take her hormones against her doctor’s advice and to not get chemo for her breast cancer. That was her choice, I just question whether it’s something she should publicize so much.

    People love to talk s*it about GOOP but Suzanne is the OG GOOP.

    • N says:

      I used to be fascinated by her on HSN 17 years ago. When The Soup covered it I knew I wasn’t alone. She is the person responsible for ALL of the people I know on bioidentical hormones. The chemo thing is not necessary to broadcast but I guess it goes with her schtick. And the ThighMaster is still going strong.
      I hope people take her info not at face value.

      OMG, you are right: THIS IS FUTURE GWYNETH

    I love this so much. sex is such an important part of a relationship. and a lot of ppl think older people stop having sex but it is exaaaaactly the opposite…talk to Anyone who has worked with seniors in co-living spaces….lol!

    and imo, not having sex is usually the canary in a coalmine for a relationship. sadly many ppl just stay in sexless relationships rather than being honest about how one or both are unhappy and making a change. cheating is NEVER ok, but it never surprises me when it happens with two people who are together but don’t have sex anymore. Two unhappy people but neither wants to make the first move to leave? it’ll end badly.

    • Nightsky says:

      Lol, the idea of working in a care home and catching seniors having wild sex all over the place …. it frightens me 😜

  3. Nicole says:

    I can’t take hormones because blood clots run in my family. My mom had a lot of success with bioidenticals, but in the past it was very expensive. I will be all over bioidenticals when the time comes.

    • Nikki* says:

      Please research it all, Nicole. There are some disturbing studies that show risk even on bioidentical hormones, after 5 years of use. I used them to get me through the worst of menopause, but then I got off them. In truth, I do miss the estrogen, but she’s not correct that bioidenticals don’t carry a higher cancer rate.

  4. Chaine says:

    Why does she keep saying it’s not a drug? If it’s something you inject into your body to change its chemistry that really seeeems
    Ike a drug.

    • MariaS says:

      Science is definitely not her forte. She has hawked pills and potions and espoused pseudoscience for decades.

    • MrsBanjo says:

      Because “drug” has a negative connotation. Oftentimes people don’t realise or choose to ignore that all medications are drugs. They only consider illicit drugs like cocaine as actual drugs.

  5. JennyJenny says:

    I’m more interested in what she’s doing to her face.
    Does she get injectables there? It just doesn’t look like natural aging to me.

    • Jaded says:

      I’ve met her in person several times and up close her face is monstrous. She’s had so much resurfacing that her skin looks like alligator hide. She’s full of injectibles and botox and has def had facelifts. What really enrages me is her constant push for bioidenticals. Estrogen is estrogen whether it comes from a plant source or pregnant mare’s pee. She is not an endocrinologist and seems to think that everyone, including breast cancer survivors (I’m one) can safely take it. NO Suzanne, medical research shows that especially with ER positive cancers (like I had) it is dangerous to take ANY type of hormone replacement.

      She and her husband have a business promoting this sh*t, and they’ll say practically anything to promote their brand. What she’s selling is nothing more than faint hope in a bottle.

    • holly hobby says:

      She resembles Donatella Versace. I thought that was Donatella before I read the header. Such a shame. At some point you got to stop fooling around with the face.

      I remember Alan Hamel hawking Alpha Beta supermarket years ago (yeah I’m that old).

      Alan was also responsible for her losing her Three’s Co job. I don’t think too much of him.

  6. Michael says:

    Unless I am wrong she is the only person from There’s Company that got her happily ever after life.

  7. Scorpio ♏️ Rants says:

    They get shots and use hormones in order to have sex twice a day.

    That sounds like work to me, not pleasure.

  8. Grant says:

    Isn’t she a Trump supporter?

  9. Texas says:

    I think she is a nut.

  10. IntheKnow says:

    I love her and she will always be Chrissy to me. Good for her and her husband.
    I’d be happy with once a month at this current rate. I am pretty sure my hymen grew back.

  11. Marigold says:

    I think it’s weird to either joke about or actually have sex with someone while they sleep. Some people have a word for that…

  12. otaku fairy.... says:

    “I had sex with him on our very first date just in case there wasn’t a second one. I just wanted to be with him that first time.” Love it. And almost half a century later, they’re still together. Take that, hymenarchy!

  13. Charfromdarock says:

    Get it, Chrissy Snow!

  14. Starkiller says:

    GROSS. Who tf is this person who has had so much plastic surgery she looks like Harvey Weinstein and why did she feel that we needed to know this? GROTESQUE.

  15. Nightsky says:

    No wonder they look so damn happy! Look at that twinkle in their eyes and their rosy cheeks. Good for them!
