When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Is there a way to disable the curse word beeps?

Yes, just don't use them in front of Alexa or children!

Good grief, what a question.  Fortunately, this seems to be a built in feature we cannot disable.  Many of us need constant reminders to clean up our speech.  Appreciate that Alexa is helping you in this way, too.

As my wife and I (and our kids) do not curse, I wonder what I am missing with this question.

Does Alexa have a dirty mouth?

So I ask a technical question and get judgement in return. My question is a valid one and is not deserving of your childish response. There is a valid reason for my question. When song titles contain curse words, they get censored and I'd prefer to hear the word instead of the beep. So perhaps the next time you don't know the answer to the question, you should just stay silent.

Maybe the default setting is to bleep music containing expletives.  Check your settings of app.  Better yet, call Amazon Echo support.

Hit up this kid:

I was LMAO-ing first time I saw it. I have been wanting to share this video here but don't know how to insert it. Thanks to you now I did! He is open to share his 'idea' based on his reply.

That's pretty funny. It looks like he created a private skill called "google" and that's the response his skill gives when the skill is activated.

If the curse word is in a music stream, I would guess that it's bleeped out at the source, and not by Amazon Echo.

If you have the time, please experiment and let us know what you find out. For example, you could upload an mp3 song that contains curse words and play it back from your music library. See if it's bleeped out.

I try not to swear, and our family doesn't, but I still think there should be an option to turn it off or on.  Maybe there is, but I haven't looked.  I don't have a lot of music with swearing, but it funny when the Echo bleeps music, but if I have her reading a kindle book, she says it all.

I really care, but my bad because I'm the on the clicked on the link.
None of my music has curse words because I had no idea Alexa would/could
bleep out those words.

That's vile, unhelpful, uncalled for and also very very late to the thread. You created an account just to do this? Really, have a word with yourself.

Well said strayfish.  I composed a few responses to try to come up with something that didn't sink to his level but was unsuccessful.  I just don't get the crassness of some people.

Me neither. Grubby, personalised and pointless nastiness that helps no one. I reported it but I'm wondering if this person has another account that we'd all recognise or if they were just cruising and this particular post hit their troll button.
