Monthly after my period ends, I inspect the discharge in my undergarments. I pray that the scent is simply musky, which implies healthy, and not fishy, which implies my bacterial vaginosis, also called BV, is back.

On the off chance that I disregard any sign that my BV has returned, I and #mycalvins are doomed. By day two the extreme smell will transform into an extraordinary tingle, which will just deteriorate the more I itch. Sex will likewise wind up plainly difficult, and by day five the greater part of the friction caused by my itching implies that I’ll be seriously sore to the touch. I will feel wounded, and inside 20 minutes of showering, my undergarment will, indeed, be doused through with discharge.

Rotten Apples Is a Database That Tells You If Any Creeps Worked On a TV Show or Film

Rotten Apples

Let’s face it — sexual misconduct is nothing new, but since the numerous accusations against Harvey Weinstein, it seems the metaphorical floodgates have opened. The #MeToo movement has been as powerful as it has been overwhelming for some survivors; while it brings about a feeling of solidarity, at the same time it can often feel like the whole world is a trigger. Many men have been supportive in the last few months, though others are wondering if it’s a “witch-hunt” that will leave us with no good (and morally sound) media left to enjoy. Well, a new project called Rotten Apples is here to help ease that worry, as they’ve made it super easy to check and see if a TV show or movie you want to watch is affiliated with anyone who has been accused of sexual misconduct.
