What is your opinion about swearing in books?

Swearing should only be in books when there is an age limit or if it's in context
I would never read a book that had swearing in it. I don't like it or think it's necessary.
I don't mind either way.
I like swearing in books! I think it makes it realistic to life and real speech. It makes the story more real.
