'I'm living this great love affair.'

Suzanne Somers knows how to keep things exciting in her marriage!

In a new interview with, the 73-year-old actress opens up about her sex-filled life with her husband of more than 40 years, Alan Hamel.

"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 says of getting PT-141 injections, which she describes as a "sexual stimulant that works on your brain," with her husband once a week.

"I thought, 'Wow, what a great thing,'" she says of the shots. "Because men have had Viagra, but this is actually a shot for both men and women that's not a drug. 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 shots, Somers says, allows her and Hamel, 83, to have sex two times per day.

"I usually say I sleep through one of them. That's usually that one at 4 o'clock in the morning," she quips. "But, you know, then again around 8 o'clock in the morning, I'm in the mood."

Their active sex life is nothing new, as Somers -- who also likes to "exchanges electrons" with Hamel by holding each other while nude -- slept with her now-husband on their first date.

"Oh, he's just so beautiful," she praises. "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."

In addition to her sex life, Somers, who recently posed nude to mark her 73rd birthday, is also very focused on wellness, as she eats organic foods, refrains from taking drugs and gets a good night's rest every day.

"[Keeping] your insides young [will] manifest on the outside," she said. "[Everyone should] value good thoughts [because] what you think is who you become. The great thing about aging is wisdom and perspective. It's the one thing no young person can buy or have."

She even starts each day with that mindset, by telling her body, "OK, we love our life. We love our husband. We love our food. We love our work. We love that we live in America."

"I feel the older I get, the better it is for my brand because I'm living the life I write about," she explains. "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.'"
