    Default TMI - the Suzanne Somers edition

    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 DailyMail.com.

    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 DailyMail.com. ‘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.”‘

    [From The Daily Mail via Just Jared]

    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.

    I actually kind of like these two and I am not repulsed by oldsters being naked or having sex - being well on the way to one myself.

    Anyway, I was intrigued by this medication she is taking "PT-141" and it is legit. It is primarily for pre-menopausal women with low libido. I don't think it is over the counter, so I guess it's okay for a post-menopausal 70-something like Suzanne Somers to have it. Apparently, it has gone from an injection type drug to a nasal spray for ease of use and less pain at the injection point.

    There are positive reviews of it all over the place, but this one from NYMAG (The First Real, Horny-Making, Body-Shaking Aphrodisiac Is a Nasal Spray) was particularly funny:

    “With PT-141, you feel good, not only sexually aroused,” reported anonymous patient 007, a participant in a Phase 2 trial, “you feel younger and more energetic.” Said another patient: “It helped the libido. So you have the urge and the desire. . . . You get this humming feeling; you’re ready to take your pants off and go.” And another: “Twice me and my wife had sex twice in one night. I came in [to work] and I just raved about it: ‘Jesus, guys . . . 58 years old and you don’t do that.’ ” Tales of pharmaceutically induced sexual prowess among 58-year-olds are common enough in the age of the Little Blue Pill, but they don’t typically involve quite so urgent a repertoire of humming, throbbing, tingling, and double-dipping. Or as patient 128 put it: “My wife knows. She can tell the difference between Viagra and PT-141.”

    “It’s not a drug” bwahahahaha! Right-o you just keep telling yourself that....


    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bremelanotide

    Common side effects include nausea, pain at the site of injection, and headache.[2] The medication is a peptide and acts as an activating the melanocortin receptors.[1][3]Bremelanotide was approved for medical use in the United States in 2019.[2] It was developed by Palatin Technologies.[4] Sales are expected to begin in September of 2019 at $US899”



    And the Somers own *massive* amounts of stock in this not-a-drug /speculation


    Shares of Palatin Technologies(NYSEMKTTN) fell over 21% on Tuesday after STAT analyst Adam Feuerstein said that the Food and Drug Administration "made a mistake" by approving the company's new drug, Vyleesi. The drug is intended to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), or low libido, in women.

    Whether or not the FDA "erred" as Feuerstein contends, it's all a moot point now that the drug has earned marketing approval. The real issue will be whether or not the drug gains any market traction. Feuerstein is correct that the drug demonstrated little benefit in clinical trials and could prove to be rather inconvenient since it has to be injected.
    What's more, nearly 40% of women taking the drug in clinical studies reported nausea, and the FDA recommends no more than eight doses per month. While the drug has yet to be priced, there are plenty of warning signs that it could prove to be a commercial flop.

    Oh shit, but it passed clinical FDA trials? I'd try it. Ok not at $899 (wtf seriously) but I've got nothing over here.

    There's only one way to resolve these claims - "leaked" sex tape.

    hmmm. scott gottlieb was head of the fda until 4/19. this 'drug' was approved 6/19. it was submitted to the fda 6/18, during gottlieb's administration. gottlieb's credo was to approve anything unless it was really harmful, even if not much better than or equal to placebo. gottlieb was appointed by trumpy, who felt like patients/consumers should decide for themselves about what meds to take. *eyeroll*

    frankly, i'm surprised it was approved. it did not meet efficacy for the secondary endpoint and had a lot more adverse events in pt-141 treated patients than the placebo patients. expensive crap that is only slightly better than placebo.

    golf clap for trump.

    Who the fuck has time for sex twice a day? I’ve seen my husband today for a cumulative time of one hour tops.

    Hmm. I faintly remember her from Three's Company over 40 years ago ( A show about John Ritter and two cute women where she was strictly eye candy) but she really never did anything I would call real acting since the 80s - early 90s.
    I keep remembering her husband as maybe the progenitor of a lot of her problems/decisions.
    From wikipedia.
    When Three's Company began its fifth season in 1980, Somers demanded a hefty salary increase from $30,000 to $150,000 an episode and 10 percent ownership of the show's profits. Those close to the situation suggested that Somers' rebellion was largely due to husband Hamel's influences. After ABC denied her a raise in salary, Somers' refused to appear in the second and fourth shows of the season, due to excuses such as a broken rib. She finished the remaining season on her contract, but her role was decreased to just 60 seconds per episode, her character only appearing in the episode's closing tag in which Chrissy calls the trio's apartment from her parents' home. After ABC fired her from the program and terminated her contract, Somers sued the network for $2 million, claiming her credibility in show business had been damaged.
    So she hadn't really done much but they damaged her "career"?
    She had some success with a TV show called Step by Step with Patrick Duffy. I remember him from Dallas and the Man From Atlantis but not much else and I have never seen this show. Has anyone else?

    After that it largely seems that she has been cruising on the fact that she is a "celebrity" and therefore should be in things....(I accidentally originally typed "thongs" here. Was that a Freudian slip?)
    Her thighmaster money must have been well invested.
    Oh wait she did a one woman show on Broadway that tangentially touches on her less than 30 second cameo in the movie American Graffitti. How did that go?
    In summer 2005, Somers made her Broadway debut in a one-woman show, The Blonde in the Thunderbird, a collection of stories about her life and career. The show was supposed to run until September, but was cancelled in less than a week after poor reviews and disappointing ticket sales. She blamed the harsh reviews (The New York Times referred to it as "...a drab and embarrassing display of emotional exhibitionism masquerading as entertainment") and told the New York Post: "These men [New York critics] are curmudgeons, and maybe I went too close to the bone for them. I was lying there naked, and they decided to kick me and step on me, just like these visions you see in Iraq.
    Oh I see no one understands you.
    she was later diagnosed with breast cancer .... or was it what they thought it was?
    In 2001, Somers was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy, and radiation, but declined to undergo chemotherapy. In November 2008, Somers announced she was diagnosed with inoperable cancer by six doctors, but she learned a week later that she was misdiagnosed. During this time, she interviewed doctors about cancer treatments and these interviews became the basis of her book, Knockout, about alternative treatments to chemotherapy. In her book Knockout, Somers promotes alternative cancer treatments, for which she was criticized by the American Cancer Society:
    So she had cancer but it turns out it was misdiagnosed?

    She reminds me of those actors/actresses who had a little talent or looked good at the right time and when their time was over - or when we tired of them - struggled to remain in the spotlight. Their typical path was to hawk junk on late night television or shows like Oprah to stay relevant.
    It still works because of a lot of gullible people with money. This includes some members of my own family.

    And when that doesn't completely work they can turn to controversial statements to keep them in the news.
    In January 2013, she suggested that Adam Lanza went on his shooting spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School due to the level of toxins in his diet and the household cleaners he was exposed to. She stated that all these chemicals may "overelectrify the brain"
    No Suzanne, I am not buying any of it, including your relevance.

    As a millennial, I know her primarily from Step by Step. I loved that show. It was The Brady Bunch for the 90s. Whatever floats her boat and works for her, but she's fooling herself and a whole lot of her followers if she thinks this stuff isn't a "drug" or that it's somehow natural.

    I had the same reaction. Who has the time??? Do some godd*mn chores around your house, you swaggering satyrs!!! I'm actually deliriously happy about my own situation, but when I hear the numbers that Somers' is supposed to be racking up, I feel like an invalid or something.

    I have a lot of nostalgia for this show - which was a blended-family comedy, like the Brady Bunch (everyone's happy, everyone gets along, nobody is unduly attracted to their step-sibling). It literally came out the year that I got married (1991). And ironically, I'm only one year older than the guy (Sasha Mitchell) who played the oldest son. I wanted a tomboy daughter like "Al". I think this show probably made a lot of money for Somers. It lasted 7 freaking years, which is well past the 5-year point where you can syndicate a show and really cash in.
