I notice it's a brown belt, though.  I can take a little appropriate profanity - sort of skip over it as I go - but not the kind of books that reek with it or drop into truly gutter language that continues. 

Not too keen on violence or torture - guess I could skip that part.  My mind just soaks in that stuff and  I'm haunted by it later and in my sleep.

Yet, I love action thrillers.

I think with regards to profanity, it has to work with the story, not just be added in. Of course in my own novels, I have to watch the amount. However, I gave Robert Pobi's Bloodman a black belt and it had loads of profanity. But it worked for the kind of story it was. I know it's sad to say in one sense, but there was so much of it in Pobi's book, I almost tuned it out.

I was around 16 and a practicing Southern Baptist when I read Exodus.  It had sexual content and scenes (as I remember, anyway) that I thought violated what a good Christian would read so I took a black pen and scribbled those out as if that made reading the book "okay."  Years later I found the book full of black scribbles and had a good laugh.  Then, I took pause to reflect on a time of innocence that seems to be disappearing altogether such that everything is so starkly real that the imagination is left with nothing to do.
