We ussually say "pleased" when asking for something, or as apolite (nice) way of saying yes to an offer.
- Pleased can I watch some TV?

- May I Please leave the room?
- Could I please have some icecream?
- Would you like  some icecream? - Yes, please
- Do you want somthing eat? - Yes, I would  please!

The word please canbe used to show satisfaction and pleasure.
- I pleased with my new house. This job pleases me.
- Your music gives me pleasure.
