Shaving of any area of the body is done simply because of personal preference. Men who swim professionally often remove the hair on their legs and other places on their body, because they feel it is a distraction when they swim.
If you wish to shave for aesthetic reasons, remember there is one good thing about body hair, it will always grow back. Men and women both shave or remove hair from their private areas, depending on personal likes, and sometimes that of their sexual partners.
It's just something you will have to try to see if you like it. Also keep in mind that when hair does grow back, it's not always very comfortable in the process.
