Are you talking about for men or for women? I shave my body, and apply coconut oil, which makes my skin soft, which I enjoy, which other people enjoy, so I don't see the issue unless you refuse to shave to oppose patriarchal oppression (I don't, I keep a very firm line drawn towards my body/bedroom and my social issues with the patriarchy, against which I am otherwise stringent). Or if you are cold. One winter in college I was cold, and celibate, and didn't shave. To me shaving is functional, it's about warmth, convenience, or sex not about dressing up.
I like hair on men, but reasonable hair. I have this super hairy male friend who I could never be attracted to, his nickname is Sasquatch, it's a bit much. And men who are hairy (pubes, beards, etc) need to wash their hair, everywhere, or I'm not having it. But i could care less what you do as a coworker, acquaintence, family member, or person dining at Soupplantation.

I find chest hair very attractive. I hate it when guys shave their bodies. Like, you're not twelve. Sorry if that offends anyone but I find it really offputting.
I think male chest hair is an aesthetic example of sexual dimorphism. Likewise, I much prefer women who shave what little body hair they have (or at least trim it) to those who do not. The only body hair I trim - and then only moderately - is my pubic hair. It is a favour to women really, as it can't be much fun getting a mass of hair in your mouth when you're blowing a guy.
