From Life-Changing News to a Life-Changing Decision
Nikki Boyer is an actress, singer-songwriter, and a co-host of Straight Talk with Ross. She met Molly over twenty years ago in acting class and they have remained close friends ever since. Molly is one of the most creative and insightful women Nikki has ever met.
Molly battled breast cancer several years ago, only to have it return in several different parts of her body in the past year. Her doctors informed her the cancer was terminal. She does not know how much time she has left.
Molly’s gut-wrenching story is all too common. However, her response to the news was unique. While some dedicate their remaining days to family and friends and others knock out “Bucket List” goals, Molly instead left her struggling marriage and entered the brave new world of dating–a world she never really experienced before.
Exploring Life Through Sex
Molly moved out of her husband’s home and into a new place just a few minutes from Nikki. The two began having conversations about Molly’s wild, wacky, and jaw-dropping dating life (including plenty of Tinder encounters). Nikki broached the idea of turning these conversations into a podcast. Molly agreed.
Over a six-episode podcast, Nikki and Molly recap Molly’s sexcapade. At first, the Dying For Sex podcast focuses on how Molly balances dating with her medicine, treatment plan, and doctor visits. Nikki is fascinated by Molly’s adventurism and willingness to put herself out there while in such a vulnerable state.
As the podcast progresses, Nikki’s questions reveal deeper and more intimate revelations about Molly. They begin to talk about more than just sex, as the conversations get more introspective. Molly teaches Nikki and the audience about love and friendship. Molly’s stories about her sex life gives Nikki new persectives on life and death, and an even deeper appreciation for Molly’s creative spirit.
