My advice? Use condoms.
Now, for the pubes. Pubic hair is, at root, just hair. There are a few basic things you need to do, and the rest is all styling preferences. Remember that and a lot of anxiety goes away.
I would advise against shaving absolutely everything; that hair is there for a reason. It serves as a dry lubricant so you don’t get a friction rash. Ask any two shaved lovers this and they’ll tell you this is something they learned the hard way.
Give it a trim if it’s unruly, give it a wash with a gentle soap or shampoo, but beyond that, how you style it is really up to you. The landing strip seems to be a popular style, but natural bush is also popular. To be honest, no hair at all is probably not necessary; the “bald” look only became popular because of porn (it’s easier to see what’s going on). The important thing is that you’re comfortable and that you like how your pubes look.
Also, use condoms.
