A lot of people are getting injured while shaving their pubic hair

A discussion of a really good reason to keep your razor sharp:

This is a beard, and is definitely not reminiscent of any other type of body hair
In a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Dermatology, public health researchers surveyed 7,570 Americans about their pubic hair habits. 

Overall, about a quarter of people who groom their pubic hair end up injuring themselves. Honestly, that's pretty impressive. Genitalia are not generally known for their smooth, flat surfaces. They’re more on the wrinkly, bumpy, squishy end of the spectrum. 

If you do end up with cuts—and let’s be honest, we pretty much all do—just make sure to treat them properly. Wash gently with soap and water (razors don't tend to be super clean), then put a little ointment on to soothe the sore. Try not to irritate it too much and you should be fine in a day or so. 

Read lots more about the study at Forbes and Popular Science, or see the whole thing here.
