    Adventures in Dating | 2

    Molly is ready to start dating in the real world. She’s balancing a life of extremes: harsh cancer treatments one moment, meeting with a new guy the next. Her first dates feel surprisingly like high school — including making out in the back seat of a car with “Toyota Guy.” And Nikki and Molly want to know what he thought about it.

Dying for Sex

This is seriously exactly what I was looking for when I went searching for a podcast. It magically appeared at the top of the list. As a survivor struggling with my own sense of self and my sexuality, it helps to know I’m not alone 💜

A good podcast ruined by Nikki

Molly shares her fun stories about exploring sexuality after being diagnosed with terminal cancer in a respectful and open-minded way. Unfortunately, that’s completely undercut by her friend. Nikki seems to be unable to understand how people could have any kink, even something so common as a foot fetish. That was annoying, but my real gripe with this podcast is how she blatantly went against Molly’s wishes.

Molly was telling her story about how she met up with this man who was an almost identical doppelgänger of a celebrity and stated how she wouldn’t say which one to protect this man’s identity. There’s an immediate edit to Nikki proudly saying she found out the celebrity’s name rhymes with Shmyan Shmeanolds. This blatant disregard for Molly’s wishes turned me off from their podcast completely.

Love, love, love!!

I am loving the ‘sexcapades’! Our situation is similar but different... I can relate on so many levels, once I left my marriage of 23 years I went on many dates and shared more than I probably should have but it made me feel completely alive!! I’m still searching and have so many stories and each guy, like you, had a name dependent on what person did or drove or their age!! Thank you for sharing your journey!!
