When did "frigging" become a good substitute for f@#king? I use it all
the time but I'm not sure when it started.

When did it become like "shoot" for shit, "dang" or "darn" for damn, "heck" for hell?

I just thought about it after I read this sentence from LBN "The US military denied the reports. "We're not flying over frigging Iran," an official said."

5. I don't know if it's something for the whole of England...
...or if it is a local North Eastern England thing.

2. Frigging in the Rigging
by the Sex Pistols is the oldest example I can think of.

13. as a collector of Victorian erotica...
I can tell you the term is older than that. It's a term for masterbation, sometimes mutual masterbation.

12. I don't think it is a good substitute
Just a substitute. There's nothing like the real thing, baby. ;)
