Guest Post: Swearing Relieves Pain

Recently, I asked some long time YBNBY readers if they'd like to share a thought or post on our main page. Loyal 77 member Evangeline is the first one to step up to the plate.

Here's a repost of an interesting article from her blog, on the beauties and benefits of profanity. Fucking enlightening, so read on...

This may shock and amaze some readers, but recent studies from Keele University have shown that swearing relieves pain.

No shit.

"While it isn't clear how or why this link exists, the team believes that the pain-lessening effect occurs because swearing triggers our natural 'fight-or-flight' response."

There is a flipside though. According to the Dr Richards who headed the study
"If they want to use this pain-lessening effect to their advantage they need to do less casual swearing."

So next time you stub your toe, let a few choice words rip, its good for you.
