Suzanne Somers, 73, jokes she fractured her hip while having sex with 83-year-old husband: 'I'm not old'
The actress opened up about her injury during her appearance on 'The Dr. Oz Show' after she was seen walking around New York City with a crutch
Suzanne Somers, 73, has revealed that her fractured hip might be a result of a sex injury from her multiple love-making sessions per day with her 83-year-old husband Alan Hamel.
The actress joked about her injury during her appearance on 'The Dr. Oz Show' after she was seen walking around New York City with a crutch while promoting her new book 'A New Way To Age.'
"I thought when I was 73, I'd be old. Chronologically, I'm old in society, but I'm not old," she explained in a preview clip from Friday's episode. "I have energy and I do have a fractured hip right now. That slows me down a little bit, but that's just from all that sex Alan and I are having."
In October last year, Somers told Daily Mail that she and Hamel have been married for more than 40 years and yet their sex life is thriving.
One of the reasons behind their vivacious lovemaking sessions even in such advanced ages might be the fact that they frequently use shots of PT-141, a melanocortin-based peptide used to generate sexual arousal.
During her appearance, Somers also delved into the backlash she received over her topless photo that she posted on Instagram in October 2019 in honor of her 73rd birthday, which was taken by her husband. She said that she did not get why her fans were outraged over her photo.
"What I'm realizing is that I'm enjoying aging and you can't lie about your age anyway because there's a thing called Google," she told Dr. Oz. "But I just want you to know, girls, it ain't over."
Apart from hailing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as the secret behind her secret to staying youthful, both she and her husband take plant-based hormones to replace whatever their bodies are lacking.
"If I only took one supplement a day—I think I take a lot—but if I only took one, I would take a probiotic because everybody's got something wrong with their gut," she explained. "You got bloating. You bloat. You got things. Look at everybody. Something's wrong because it's the environment. And so, the one thing you could do for your gut that would be the best thing you could do is take a probiotic every day, and then to make it work better, either take a prebiotic or eat sauerkraut. I make sauerkraut. It’s fun to make."
