Although some couples might be having trouble keeping the peace while stuck in quarantine, Suzanne Somers and husband, Alan Hamel, are clearly only feeling the love.
Somers, 73, opened up in a chat with Page Six about her relationship with Hamel, 83. The couple have been married for more than 40 years now and aren’t letting this “new normal” we’re all living in slow down their frisky side one bit. “I have a husband who I inject every Tuesday with testosterone and Wednesday’s a very good day,” she explained, referring to PT-141 injections they have both taken for decades to boost their libidos. The plant-based treatment is approved by the FDA and commonly goes by the brand name Vyleesi.
The Three’s Company joked about how even her friends are surprised by the amount of times she and Hamel like to hit the sheets together. “My girlfriends go, ‘You do not have sex twice a day.’ It’s no forced march,” Somers playfully added. “I’m in the mood. He’s in the mood. Sometimes it’s once a day. Sometimes later in the day, you’re in the mood again because what are you going to do during this pandemic?” We can’t argue with her there.
Somers also started hosting virtual happy hours on her Facebook page with her hubby mixing up drinks for them at what they’ve dubbed “Big Al’s Bar” in their backyard. According to Somers, having fun with little events like this are another key to keeping the spark alive while they’re cooped up, whether they broadcast it to others or not. “There are nights when we dance. There are nights when he sits opposite me. There are nights he sits next to me,” she described. “I always end up kissing him. I touch his face all the time. And the result of this is romance.”
She’s not advocating getting sloshed every day, of course, and explained that she always stops sipping after two drinks. Somers also shared how the pandemic has inspired her to appreciate their already very loving relationship even more — which she encourages other couples to embrace, too. “We’ve been romantic, but during this coronavirus, it’s more romantic and you realize how great it is to have someone. So if you have someone, cherish that someone. Fall in love again. Adore that person.”
According to relationship experts, focusing more on what you love about your partner than the little things that drive you crazy in close quarters will definitely go a long way to make this whole strange situation less stressful, so Somer’s is definitely on to something there.
Quarantined or not, there’s no denying Somers and her fella know how to keep the flame alive and well between them. We’ll cheers to that!
