The swear word ‘F’ in Hollywood Movies

As an Indian I always wondered why most of the Hollywood movies/TV serials have F* word in most of the dialogues.

Check this out

Wikipedia gives us the list of movies and also total number of times the word f* used. (from 1978 to 2018 )

List of Films that most frequently use the word’Fuck’

It’s a taboo here in India to even utter just ‘F’

As I checked the  following  quora link,I realized the word F*** can have different meanings depending on the circumstance,apart from sexual connotations !

Why is the word F*** used so many times in English Movies,eventhough,it doesn’t make any sense sometimes ?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you

    As a child growing up in New Zealand I was taught that the ‘f’ and ‘c’ words were not acceptable. Numerous people in New Zealand and Australia use those words in their daily language. I still find those words unacceptable. To deal with it I have to ignore it.

    I think the users of those words don’t see them as rude and crude.
