"Heartbreaking, funny and galvanising as much as erotic; a combination of elements that point to a life fully lived. …"

Dish Stanley • Prime Crush May 17, 2021

"Molly is funny, introspective, empathetic, creative, unguarded, curious, unnervingly honest, enchanting. Listening to Molly's story gives a titillating glimpse into a very real but foreign world (to me). While that alone is worth the listen, more powerful was the reminder to remain open and check my judgment of others, to focus with earnestness on my own path to wellness and wholeness, and mostly for its urgent call to become the author of my own life story."

"You really don’t expect sexting or tickle fetishes to poignantly explore what it means to be alive – but Nikki and Molly do so with charisma, wit, and such vulnerability that sometimes it feels wrong to keep listening. Equal parts healing and heart-breaking, Dying for Sex is something special.Heads-up: the final episode is profound and life-affirming. I used to think of myself as an emotionless, stone-cold bitch – but I heard it and sobbed."

Eoghan O'Sullivan • Irish Examiner Mar 16, 2021

"At times funny, odd, sexy, and disgusting...Molly's personality shines through, especially when we realise that a terminal cancer diagnosis doesn't just go away. A brilliant podcast."

Jade Hayden • Her.IE May 16, 2020

"Dying For Sex is a series that ultimately changes the ways that we think about sex, kinks, and, most importantly, death. Where there was once a gap in language, an unwillingness to address what is common, there is conversation, detail, and a lot of laughter."

Freeman Lancer • Primal Stream Media Feb 25, 2020

"Although this intimate new podcast, along with Molly's blog, Instagram, and book, is ostensibly about a woman's sexual bucket list as her expiration date looms near, Dying For Sex tackles universal subjects such as forgiveness, friendship, healing, love, and our inevitable mortality. It might seem that some of these are tough subjects to talk about -- or listen to -- but the conversations are often surprisingly hilarious..."
