I put this in Politics, Economics, (etc.) because I know for some women this IS a political issue.

I ran into a stack of old Penthouse magazines and after looking through them (for sociological reasons, of course) I was reminded that way back when (before some of the younger members here were born, no doubt) women had hair down there. Today, they're bald as newborn babies. At least, that's the impression you might get from much of the nude images today.

The question is: pubes...thumbs up or thumbs down. And why, if you want to discuss it. I've heard women argue that pubes are unhealthy. I've heard men complain of rug burn tongue. I'm not sure I buy either of those arguments. 

If you want to discuss men and their pubes as well, that's fine, too.

This is not much of a political issue for men. It's different for women.

A lot of feminists feel that shaving the female pelvic area has little to do with sanitation and a lot more to do with porn and male partner pressure. Many of them don't buy the hygiene issue regarding pubic lice, believing that there are far better ways to avoid that and other STD's (safe sex, more responsibility in choosing partners, etc.). In that regard, they are in line with the general medical community who, it must be noted, are NOT promoting removal of body hair for medical reasons in most cases (there may be reason to do so in some cases, of course). 

Googling on topic combinations with keywords like "pubes, pubic hair, feminism, politics, and political," will give you ample references to think about.

Any one for a Vajazzle?

Perhaps a pink merkin, then?

So, if I understand right, some women vajazzle their v'jayjay?

Only the good ones bud. Only the good ones. I've never in my life let on I was rasping on a hair. Just keep swallowing. The feeling soon goes away. Thumbs up for jungle here.

I think one thing that has to be said is that the oft-used reason for shaving or waxing is "to avoid getting crab lice" may leave the impression there's no downside and that there are no alternatives to removing the hair.

One doesn't get crab lice off toilet seats, one gets it because of irresponsible sex. If not one's own irresponsible sex, then the irresponsible sex of the person you're having sex with, and if you're having that sort of sex, there are other diseases one can contract as well. Your best way not to get crabs is to be a little more careful in your sex life in terms of knowing who you're having sex with and learning what their standards are as to whom they choose to have sex with.

The medical community is indicating that shaving and waxing exposes one to viruses due to the micro-abrasions and micro-injuries those practices cause.

I have been, and hope to continue to be a photographer of nudes. Personally, as a matter of aesthetics, I think a dark triangle down there is a nice natural decoration.
