The Health Benefits Of Cursing

Warning- This post contains language that may not be suitable for all readers. If this describes you, kindly fuck off. 😀

There should be no x over this because cursing is wonderful.

Oh the misguided search results this post is going to cause… Lol. I love to curse. I really do. It just works so well in almost any given situation. It is a wonderful way to express yourself. Whether it is to express happiness, like “That’s fucking awesome!” or extreme annoyance, like “What a fucking asshole!” Of course, I can restrain myself when necessary if I know that it truly bothers people or I’m in a church or something. Haha. But that’s not very fun. I always enjoy myself when I’m around others where no editing is necessary, especially when I want to rant about something. The cursing definitely becomes more prominent when I’m stressed or upset about something. When the first thing I say when I get home is “You won’t fucking believe this fucking asshole I had to talk to at work today!” my husband knows it hasn’t been a good day.

Now, I am not a doctor or anything, but this is my personal opinion on some of the health benefits of cursing.

– Cursing relieves stress. Don’t you feel better after you’ve been able to vent to someone about all the things that have been bugging you? Doing so while peppering the conversation with expletives works even better! It’s like pushing on a valve to release a bit of the stress inside you each time you do it, keeping you from EXPLODING!

-Cursing can help lower your blood pressure. This is all purely independent research, but I actually took my blood pressure at work various times throughout the week and found that it was lower after I’d cursed a lot. Seriously! See relieving stress above, it’s all related.

-Cursing can help alleviate pain. Now you all perked up, didn’t you? I found the following in this online article. A recent study published in NeuroReport found that participants who immersed their hands in icy water and were allowed to shout expletives experienced significantly less prickly, numbing pain than when they repeated neutral words. Researchers speculate that cursing activates the stress response, boosting the body’s pain threshold to deal with crisis. Pretty sweet, huh?

-Cursing adds to an overall sense of wellness. Well you aren’t feeling stressed anymore, you have good blood pressure, and you’re able to take one hell of a spanking! How could you not feel better after all of that? Cursing is kind of like road rage. You don’t have to pull out the big guns, but a bit of muttering under your breath will make you feel better, one f bomb at a time.

Ah, the things you can buy in NYC.

Now I hope any tops out there that are reading this can see the logic in my points and ignore the usual “top logic.” Many tops find cursing one of the top things on their list of spankable offenses. Yes, I’m speaking from experience. I’ve been spanked for cursing on more than one occasion, even had my mouth washed out with soap. Blech. But I still have hope that one day tops will see the error of their ways and realize that cursing is a really beneficial thing. It can even be used for a top’s benefit in the way of giving feedback in a scene. “Shit, that hurts!” is letting you know that you’re doing a good job!

The following is content I had in one of those forwarded emails you see again and again, and really cracks me up.

Perhaps one of the most interesting and colorful words in the English language today is the word “fuck”. It is the one magical word which, just by its sound, can describe pain, pleasure, love, and hate.
In language, “fuck” falls into many grammatical categories.

  • It can be used as a verb, both transitive (John fucked Mary) and intransitive (Mary was fucked by John).
  • It can be an action verb (John really gives a fuck), a passive verb (Mary really doesn’t give a fuck), an adverb (Mary is fucking interested in John), or as a noun (Mary is a terrific fuck).
  • It can also be used as an adjective (Mary is fucking beautiful) or an interjection (Fuck! I’m late for my date with Mary). 
  • It can even be used as a conjunction (Mary is easy, fuck she’s also stupid). 
As you can see, there are very few words with the overall versatility of the word “fuck”.  Aside from its sexual connotations, this incredible word can be used to describe many situations…

Greetings   “How the fuck are ya?”
Fraud       “I got fucked by the car dealer.”
Resignation “Oh, fuck it!”
Trouble     “I guess I’m fucked now.”
Aggression  “FUCK YOU!”
Disgust     “Fuck me.”
Confusion   “What the fuck…….?”
Difficulty  “I don’t understand this fucking business!”
Despair     “Fucked again…”
Pleasure    “I fucking couldn’t be happier.”

Displeasure “What the fuck is going on here?”

Lost        “Where the fuck are we.”
Disbelief   “UNFUCKING BELIEVABLE!”
Retaliation “Up your fucking ass!”
Denial      “I didn’t fucking do it.”
Perplexity  “I know fuck all about it.”
Apathy      “Who really gives a fuck, anyhow?”
Greetings   “How the fuck are ya?”
Suspicion   “Who the fuck are you?”
Panic       “Let’s get the fuck out of here.”
Directions  “Fuck off.”
Disbelief   “How the fuck did you do that?”

It can be used in an anatomical description- “He’s a fucking asshole.”

It can be used to tell time- “It’s five fucking thirty.”

It can be used in business- “How did I wind up with this fucking job?”
It can be maternal- “Mother fucker.”
It can be political- “Fuck Dan Quayle!”

 It has also been used by many notable people throughout history…

“What the fuck was that?”
– Mayor of Hiroshima

“Where the fuck is all this water coming from?”
– Captain of the Titanic

“That’s not a real fucking gun.”
John Lennon

“Who’s gonna fucking find out?”
– Richard Nixon

“Heads are going to fucking roll.”
– Anne Boleyn

“Let the fucking woman drive.”
– Commander of Space Shuttle

“What fucking map?”
– “Challenger,” Mark Thatcher

“Any fucking idiot could understand that.”
– Albert Einstein

“It does so fucking look like her!”
– Picasso

“How the fuck did you work that out?”
– Pythagoras

“You want what on the fucking ceiling?”
– Michaelangelo

“Fuck a duck.”
– Walt Disney

“Why?- Because its fucking there!”
– Edmund Hilary

“I don’t suppose its gonna fucking rain?”
– Joan of Arc

“Scattered fucking showers my ass.”
– Noah

“I need this parade like I need a fucking hole in my head.”
– John F. Kennedy

More delighful things sold in NYC.

So there you have it. Curse away and enjoy yourself. There are plenty of good reasons to do so. I hope we’ve all learned something today. And if anybody forwards this post to any tops we know who hate cursing, I may have to fucking kill you. 😀

    I recall reading that article about the ice water experiment and you know, it makes sense. Think of how much better you feel when something bad happens and you say, “Oh, for FUCK'S sake!!!!”

    I know I do.

    I also remember the video describing how versatile the word 'fuck' is in the english language!! It was fucking funny!

    My favorite is 'fuck you, you fucking fuck!!' Verb, adjective and noun, all in one sentence!!

    lol… very funny post. Cursing works best (in our opinion) when it is used in a humorous way. It can be hilarious too. The time it works the least is when it comes from an angry place. But really, not much about anger does work.

    Lewis Black does a pretty good rift about the word 'fuck' btw. He says, in part… “I'll tell ya, in New York City, where I've lived far too long, 'fuck' isn't even a word, it's a comma.”

    Lea, that was fucking hysterical! I suppose that I am a “closet cusser,” because I only relax my language around people I know VERY well. And, really, what is it with Tops and “language!” Sometimes, only an expletive can describe the situation accurately.

    I laughed my way throught the entire blog – thank you, Lea! But you know that you will “pay” for it!

    I love to curse. There's an art to it, like anything else. With the right timing and panache, it can be hilarious. Overused or at the wrong time, and it's crass and gratuitous. I did get my mouth washed out with soap as a child for cursing (and I didn't even know what I was saying; I was just parroting), but I sure as fuck wouldn't allow it now! 🙂
