But a quick word of caution though: if you’re one who easily gets offended OR YOU ARE A MINOR, stay away because there are some vulgar terms up ahead. Some of the words (okay, most of the words) in the list can be quite offensive to some, and this whole article starting from this point contains explicit language.

But if you’re not easily offended, go right ahead and check out the list of Spanish curse words.

I. A Few Reminders

  • Learn the words and understand, but use sparingly otherwise you’d be in for a load of trouble!
  • Just like in any other country, cursing can be very offensive and insulting, but among friends when used casually, a little bit of swearing is fine and even funny.
  • Learning about how a certain group of people curse can give you a lot of insights about what they find the most offensive, and would give you a peek into their collective minds.
  • Please remember that the translations given here are more or less the closest approximation to the Spanish curse words. And as slang terms, these words may carry a different equivalent depending on which part of the Spanish-speaking world you are.

III. Level 2 Spanish Cursing

32. Que te jodan. It is used in Spain as something similar to 'fuck you'.

33. Me cago en... is also used in Spain. It means "I shit on..."

For example:

  • Me cago en tu puta madre. I shit on your bitch of a mother. (yikes!))
  • Me cago en la madre que te parió! I shit on the mother that gave birth to you! (That’s quite awful!)
  • Me cago en Dios. I shit on God. (Now that’s just pure blasphemy!)

All of it sounds hair-raisingly vulgar, right?

“Me cago en…” can also be used in other ways such as:

  • Me cago en la leche. It literally means, “I shit on the milk” but it is used similar to “holy shit”
  • Me cago en tus muertos. I shit on your dead relatives. (dude! That’s sick.)
  • Me cago en la madre que te parió. (I shit on the mother that gave birth to you)

And the one that tops it all:

34. Que te folle un pez. (also used in Spain). It means "I hope you get fucked by a fish". (I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy, that’s for sure)

35. Que te den. Up yours. This is used like ‘fuck you’. (also used in Spain)

36. Que te den por culo. Also used like 'fuck you' same as the previous one, and also mainly used in Spain.
