I find that the vast majority of human cursing is about inappropriately using it as a sort of comma or break pause... and certainly more or less an automatism.

Internal reward mechanisms, pleasure, are far from being specific to humans BTW (one might also keep in mind that psychoactive substances are practically the most reliable of achieving those, that there's hardly anyone capable of avoiding addiction; and that large part of "feel good" comes from cognitive biases)
