I hope that you find these phrases useful. Many of these can be considered vulgar and are perhaps a bit stronger than their English counterparts - it all depends upon the situation in which you use them. In France it is not so much a problem to swear, but more about when you choose to do so and the meaning of many of these phrases changes to fit the situation and conviction you put into saying them. Be careful.
