    I vote no on everything.  But I’m older, not religious at all, and enjoy crude humor  🙂

    Both are what I’d call low level swearing. (As a church going protestant Christian). If my teenage kids used it (and they don’t, at least not in front of me), they’d be politely told not to use it in our house, but not much more. I think c*ck is a little worse. Though Darling Husband and DS love watching “Top Gear” (UK version), and it’s a running joke that one of the hosts says it all the time. So I’ve got to put up with it in that context at least 🙂

    I know a lot of people that use the word “dick,” but not the word “cock.”

    @gangqinjia:  Depends on the context really and intonation!

    I think it might depend on your audience and who you are saying those words in front or around. Some people find it to be like swear words, I would agree with PP that is dirtry slang. But I think it really depends on the context and situation.

    Secret Choice H. They’re both profanity, but neither of them is shocking.

    They’re not swear words, but cock is a dirty word IMO. I don’t say it, and I don’t like it. Dick doesn’t bother me in most situations.

    I voted they’re both dirty slang, and I said neither was considered profanity. 

    They aren’t swear words, just slang words for penis. I’ve mainly heard them used in a joking manner. I’ve said them myself, probably too many times to count, either jokingly, or referring to someone as a dick when talking to my Fiance or friends. 

    I might be surprised if I heard someone who was normally mild-mannered and very proper using either of those words, but I wouldn’t think they were swearing.

    OP, just curious…which of you thinks it’s a swear word?

    It’s funny…FH and I were talking about this the other night! I said “cock” and he said that was basically a swear word. He said it was the equivalent of the C word and I was like…UM…NO. Haha. I think it’s just a notch above “dick” in offensiveness but he thinks it’s super offensive.

    @gangqinjia:  Dirty slang for both. I was shocked to hear Fiance say d*** because he’s so anti dirty words! lol

    Both are dirty slang, but I wouldn’t consider either a swear word.
