Let consenting adults do as they please

What people do behind closed doors as consenting adults is nothing to do with governments whatsoever.
That covers sex, drugs, everything - it just seems to be a no-brainer. Governments should of course advise on the potential dangers of certain activities, but that should be the end of their role.
It is sickening that some governments can arrest people, put them in prison and even hang them, for doing things as consenting adults in their own homes. It is disgraceful.
Can anybody out there think of anything which should be forbidden between consenting adults behind closed doors? Let people do what they want.
