I fucking love this. I curse all the time in my writing. I think would actually be an interesting study to see how much. I think just about every single one of my stories has profanity in it. I wonder if my stores would be curated more if I stopped. But, then I don’t because it doesn’t seem authentic to me. I curse in my writing for many of the reasons you note. But mostly, I do it because it just seems to fit. My voice includes swearing.

I actually curse like a sailor in real life, too. So, there’s that.
