I've cursed *at* him once or twice. Only once in a really bad way. I recently told him he was really stupid sometimes, which is at least as impolite as cursing.

When I first started seeing him, he cursed occasionally and easily. But after a while he stopped, and now rarely curses and usually seems self conscious when he does. I've always thought that he deliberately cursed at the beginning to indicate he was open to that kind of communication. But as any good therapist does, he modified his vocabulary to match mine. Or possibly he just likes cursing, and stopped when our relationship took on parent/child overtones.

I curse occasionally. Seldom enough that when I do, he perks up his ears to show understanding that what I'm saying must be emotionally charged.

Outside the therapy room I curse often enough to fill the curse cup regularly, and lead to some nice curse cup donations. I do it less often lately, usually computer related.
