Did you know that swearing can ease labour pains, make you exercise more efficiently, and improve your sex life? It's true - so says Dr Emma Byrne in this very sweary episode!
We get some advice on how to cope when your kids start learning naughty words, and find out that even monkeys do swears sometimes. Emma explains why swearing is a feminist issue, and why she can't wait for her own daughter to tell her to go f*** herself. Then it's the return of The Swearing Game, and we finish with some sweary Scummy Mummy Confessions.
Emma's brilliant book, Swearing is Good For You: The Amazing Science of Bad Language, is out now. She is on Twitter @SciWriBy.
