How can I swear better? I want to learn the art of swearing to broaden the range of my expression, be it to share joy, frustration, boredom or anything else.

Now I've read about people that are gifted at using vulgarity to express themselves, and who swear in a way that really opens up the possibilities of language. But I've no idea how to do this myself.
Some googling shows ways to insult people - this isn't what I want. I want to use a wider range swear words more creatively and perhaps in longer expressions. My current swearing proficiency is scattering isolated expletives through my conversation.
Good examples in video/audio/text are all welcome, as are descriptions of swearing, practical advice or other related material.
