Setting: still Paris in the 30s.

Issue: I have a number of characters in canon that make frequent and loving use of the word "fuck" in all its shapes. Obvs, it doesn't fit the context at the time, especially not in the place of the common comma as they tend to do in canon. What phrase/words could I use instead?

Addendum: most English bad words that I can recall are based on religion. "Hell", "damn", "god", what have you. Most of my characters are very much communists - and the one that swears the most is both a communist and Jewish (though that doesn't show, as he's not a main character). Do the math as to how likely it is that militant communists in the 30s would be using that kind of words.
