Suzanne Somers has a perfectly active sex life after 40, thank you very much!
Following Miley Cyrus
's controversial comments
on Monday about middle-aged people no longer getting intimate, Somers, 66, announced on Tuesday's episode of The Talk
that she has sex "a couple times a day" with her husband of 36 years, Alan Hamel.
"He's on hormones and I'm on hormones," Somers said bashfully, to the sound of laughter and applause. "I'm going to be so sorry I said that. What is it about men at four in the morning? And then I'm really awake around eight or so. We have busy mornings."
Discussing her racy persona
with Matt Lauer, Cyrus, 20, had said, "I heard when you turn 40, things start to go a little less sexual. So probably around 40, around that time, I heard that's when people don't have sex anymore."
Upon learning the Today
host is 55, Cyrus said simply, "You're really, definitely not sexual."
Somers isn't the only celebrity over 40 to recently praise their active sex life.
Tracy Morgan, 44, boasted about it to PEOPLE at the Emmys, saying, "It's good to know that middle-aged men are still [expletive]. It's good to know that. It's a good thing."
