When we refer as someone as having a sailor’s mouth, we imagine we’re talking about a man — but do women take the title of cursing more than men? It seems so.

A study by Lancaster University and the Cambridge University Press, gathered hours of recorded conversations from 376 volunteers that amassed over 10 million words.

After studying the recordings, they found that women take the crown when it comes to swearing, making ladylike language a thing of the past.

Women are ten times more likely to curse with the F-word for example.

According to the Daily Mail, over the past two decades women’s use of the F-word has increased by more than 500 percent.

Why are women feeling the need to express themselves using foul language?

Well, foul-mouthed men and the ongoing progress of equality between the sexes might be some of the main reasons.
