Well, if you shave it off and decide you don't like being ahem 'bald', you can always wear a merkin.

It also seems to be good for reducing friction in sensitive areas, especially when a little perspiration is added.

Because our natrual scent is attractive to the other sex and the hair helps release the scent.

So, why do people shave? Is it just so we have a more pleasurable time cuddling ?

The recent trend of shaving and trimming pubic hair has had some unpleasant consequences for those that do so – unsatisfying sex lives and a corresponding increase in uninformed patients seeking help from sex therapists.

The reasons for this lie in human physiology. Persons that shave or trim their pubic hair are unwittingly eliminating from their bodies an extraordinarily powerful ingredient in the recipe for satisfying sexual relations – pheromones, bodily secretions that are unconsciously sensed by the human brain and deemed highly necessary for fulfilling sexual relations by physicians specializing in human sexuality.

A specialized structure located inside the nose called the Vomeronasal organ detects invisible airborne and odorless pheromone molecules that are produced in specialized sweat glands (apocrine glands) which occur primarily in the genital and axillary areas, and to a lesser degree in the naval and anal areas of the body.

Body hair in these areas trap and concentrate the apocrine gland pheromone secretions, where naturally occurring bacteria begin to decompose them. During this natural decomposition process, pheromones are released into the air as sweat evaporates from the skin and body hair. Once airborne, especially during sexual relations, these pheromones are sensed by the Vomeronasal organ. These signals are then sent through specialized nerves to a part of the brain called the hypothalamus -- a part known for its capacity to alter one's emotions, hormones, and sexual behavior.

During sexual relations, the effect of pheromones is extraordinarily powerful, resulting in a high degree of stimulation and activity. Elimination or reduction of body hair in the area of the apocrine glands results in a corresponding reduction of pheromones. This in turn translates into mildly to highly decreased sexual stimulation of one’s sexual partner.
The main pheromones produced by the apocrine glands are:

In males:  Androstenone, Androstenol, and Androsterone. These pheromones strongly increase the desire for sexual intercourse in women.

In females:  Copulins, an assortment of fatty acids and other biological molecules that serve to induce copulation in men.

Interestingly, research has demonstrated that homosexual males and females react as strongly to pheromones released by members of their own sex, as heterosexual males and females respond to pheromones released by member of the opposite sex.

I think that you all have sex on the brain.
The most logical reason we have pubic hair is to reduce friction in areas that rub together and to dissipate sweat.
I agree with the other reasons for pubic hair being for pheromone secretion and mate attraction but it's not the only case.
Have a go at shaving a region in a confined space on the body and take note of how much more sweat seems to accumulate. Also if you rub you finger across a portion of your underarm with no hair and then across a portion with hair you will notice a significant difference in the amount of friction created between your finger and underarm skin.
Just a thought, could do with some real scientific investigation though.

Has one ever thought of why a man perfers a woman to be shaved or bald down there in their nether regions.  Has one ever thought that maybe the man has some subconscience or secret desire to have his partner look more like a pre-puberty young girl who has yet to grow pubic hair?
