Quote from Hugo Adam Bedau,

"Government should allow persons to engage in whatever conduct they want to,
no matter how deviant or abnormal it may be, so long as
(a) they know what they are doing,
(b) they consent to it, and
(c) no one -- at least no one other than the participants -- is harmed by it."
