Their clothes become deeply infused and we're the ones left to "enjoy" and launder their vintage stankiness.

Every year, the British publication Literary Review presents an award for Bad Sex in Fiction. Established in 1993 by the Literary Review editor, Auberon Waugh, and critic Rhoda Koenig, the award is given to high-profile literary novelists in an attempt to take them down a peg, really, though its purported mission is to "draw attention to poorly written, perfunctory or redundant passages of sexual description in modern fiction."
French author, Didier Decoin and John Harvey, a life fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, were both announced as winners of the 2019 "Britain's most dreaded literary prize" after the judges struggled to pick just one winner.
This is the first time either author has won the prize. In a statement announcing the result on Monday night, the judges said: "Faced with two unpalatable contenders, we found ourselves unable to choose between them. We believe the British public will recognize our plight as we were unable to choose even after hours of tortuous debate".

And from the moment the word spread, the men dramatically feared the worst... stepping into their wives shoes.
Must have been so awful being a housewife. Considering all the men who created these illustrations displaying their worst nightmare, becoming the housewife themselves. Oh, the absolute horror.
Twitter product manager, Laura Gao, took over twitter feed this weekend with her viral imaginary script of her and her unpleased dad flying together when there's a medical emergency on the plane. People loved it and used the meme as Gao intended—to talk about themselves and what they do.
