Description

When Molly's diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, she decides to do something bold: she leaves her unhappy marriage and embarks on a series of sexual adventures to help her feel alive. She shares the funniest and most touching details with her closest friend, host Nikki Boyer. As they peel back the layers, we learn that Molly isn’t just grappling with breast cancer: she's also dealing with some trauma from her past. Along the journey, the friends explore bigger themes that affect us all -- like healing, forgiveness and what do we do with the time we have left.

From Wondery, the makers of The Shrink Next Door and Imagined Life, Dying for Sex is a six-part series about friendship, sex and love, and overcoming adversity. Hosted by Nikki Boyer.

What if you liked life like you were going to die tomorrow? What if you were actually given an expiration date? No one knows how they would react in this situation. She is lucky to have someone along chronicling her journey. I would have hated to think she would have been alone on her death bed.

I can't tell if people with foot fetishes have it easy or hard. Summer would be difficult to navigate.

This was one of the most powerful things I have ever heard. You and Molly did such a great job, I felt like I got to know Molly and like I was a part of your lives and your friend. I cried when she passed away with you! I have never cried at a pod cast. This was beautiful, funny, smart and inspiring, thank you for sharing!

Just finished episode 6. Weirdly the thing that shocked me the most was not listening to all of those good sex escapades stories, not even the tragic experience she had to go through at 7 and her cancer but how so suddenly her voice sounded different in that last episode. And yet she was still there and very recognizable... Thank you so much for sharing Molly’s life experience with us. You really had the best of best friends!! Can’t wait to read her book.
