The Doctors discuss a recent study by Lancaster University and the Cambridge University Press which looked at hours and hours (10 million words worth of material) of recorded conversations from 376 participants which found that women are 10 times more likely to swear than men!
“I think women have a lot on our plate. We’re working moms, we’re busy and it’s hard sometimes,” Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says of the urge to cuss from time to time. She also points to the idea that women swearing could be a sign of more equality between the genders in our society where women feel more empowered to express themselves freely.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork thinks cussing can be a good thing from time to time. “Holding that inside can increase stress levels [and] blood pressure,” he says.
The Doctors also note that research suggests letting out an expletive in a moment of physical pain can reduce your pain levels. So if you are feeling stressed or have aches and pain, go ahead and let a few of your favorite cuss words fly – you just might feel better afterward!
