Sue Johanson, Beloved Canadian Sex Educator, Dead at 93
Sue Johanson, the cherished Canadian media personality who captivated a generation with her candid sex advice during her later years, has passed away at the age of 93, as confirmed by a representative on Thursday.
Johanson peacefully passed away while surrounded by her family in Thornhill, Ontario, a long-term care home just north of Toronto, where she resided.
Renowned for her role as the host of the Canadian call-in radio and later television show, the Sunday Night Sex Show, Johanson achieved great success and even had a popular spinoff in the United States titled Talk Sex With Sue Johanson.
Born in Toronto, Johanson embarked on her career as a nurse and received her training in Winnipeg. In the 1970s, she established a birth control clinic at her daughter Jane’s high school, which she diligently operated for nearly two decades.
The Sunday Night Sex Show premiered as a live call-in program on Toronto radio in 1984, and its television version aired on W Network from 1996 to 2005. Talk Sex With Sue Johanson, the American adaptation, debuted in 2002 and concluded in 2008.
Johanson’s invaluable advice spanned a wide range of topics, from guidance on utilizing sex toys and spicing up intimacy in the bedroom to navigating the sensitive subjects of human sexuality, all delivered with her distinctive humor and frankness.
