‘Three’s Company’: Suzanne Somers Admits She Has More Sex Before Noon Than the Average Person Does All Week

Three’s Company star Suzanne Somers has been happily married to her husband, Alan Hamel, for more than 40 years. TV show legend Somers, 74, and Hamel, 84, are still “madly in love.”

They’ve never been shy about packing on the PDA. But how have they kept the spark alive after all this time? According to Somers, the secret is frequent date nights and lots of sex.

Suzanne Somers says her marriage is ‘the most beautiful part’ of her life

Somers and Hamel tied the knot back in 1977, the same year she began her five-season run on Three’s Company.  It was the second marriage for Somers, who had previously wed Bruce Somers in 1968. They shared a child, Bruce Somers Jr. It was also Hamel’s second marriage. He shares three children with his first wife, Marilyn, whom he divorced in 1977.

Over the years, Somers and Hamel have enjoyed showing their affection for one another. Everywhere from the red carpet to social media. Somers told Us Weekly that they’ve always given each other a lot of attention, in both public and private. They are so close that they wake up holding hands.

“That seems simple, but you’d be amazed at how many couples don’t remember to give one another a lot of attention,”Somers said. “It’s not, like, a chore for us. I love to hug him and rub his hair. He tells me I’m beautiful all the time and we hold hands while we sleep. It’s the most beautiful part of my life.”

They’ve dated during quarantine

Somers and Hamel have continued to quarantine together amid the pandemic. She says that they’ve spiced things up with date nights, which she believes are very important in a long-term marriage.

“So, here’s a date — it’s 5 o’clock and that’s when I stop working and he stops working, or if I do a Facebook Live show, I go to work from 5 to 6. But on the nights that I don’t do Facebook Live, we meet at Big Al’s bar — that’s the bar at our house — and he pours me a stiff tequila of clear because clear has little to no sugar and a lot of ice.”

She says they sip tequila, listen to music, and sometimes dance. She says there’s nothing phony about it, it’s “just what we do.” Around four o’clock everyday, Sommers says she starts looking forward to spending the evening with her husband.

Suzanne Somers has a lot of sex with her husband

Somers and Hamel have a lot of date nights. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t spending time together during other times of the day. Somers revealed on Heather Dubrow’s World Podcast that she and Hamel have sex “three times before noon.”

“At this stage of life, most people think that’s, you know, over the hill, too much information,” Somers explained. “But what time is it, like noon? I’ve had sex with him three times so far today. What is it about 4:30 in the morning that suddenly, there he is? I’m going, ‘Could you just wait until the sun comes up?'”

Their relationship has always been amazing

Somers insists that her relationship with Hamel has “always been amazing.” But, during this stage in their lives it’s all about “having fun.” She explained that their kids are raised, tuition is paid for, weddings are paid for, and they’ve helped them get their start. Now, it’s just “me and Al,” Somers says.

She admits that they don’t always have sex three times before noon. But, she says she’s always in the mood, as is her husband. Sometimes it’s just once a day, sometimes it’s later in the day. She says that she injects her husband with testosterone every Tuesday, so Wednesday is always “a very good day.”

Should couples be having as much sex as Suzanne Somers and her husband?

Somers and Hamel are having a lot of sex, but is that normal? According to experts, the common baseline is “once a week.” However, that statistic does slightly depend on age. People in their 20s and 30s average out to twice per week.

Dr. Peter Kanaris told USA Today that averages really shouldn’t be a guide for a healthy sex life. He says couples are all over the sex spectrum, with some having little to no sex and others getting it on 12 to 14 times per week.

“What’s actually more important than for couples to get caught up in some statistical norm to match themselves to that is to look at this from a perspective of sexual satisfaction,” he explained. “If a couple is sexually satisfied, then that’s the goal.”
