Why do We have Pubic Hair?

The most common belief of why we have pubic hair goes all the way back to the cave man era. According to this theory you body secretes pheromones that attract the opposite sex and your pubic hair, as well as your underarm hair, helps to capture that erotic scent. You could say it is the primative way to make babies. Another theory is that the pubic hair is just like your nose hair and traps dust and germs and protects your body. Linda S ltskinne
