Question

Why do I have so much pubic hair?


Answer

Pubic hairs do have a function. They help provide a small amount a warmth to your scrotum. They also help to hold your clothing a bit away from your genitals so that you have better air circulation around them, which is important when you need cooling and to promote drying. The pubic hairs also keep clothing and your own skin from directly rubbing your genitals and causing irritation. This later is a consideration during actual sexual intercourse.
