Well if sex is for pleasure why is sex with animals or with your daughters still considered icky or even mentally ill, I mean the argument is that as long as what floats your boat right, and who are you to judge if someone finds pleasure having sex with a corpse or being rammed in the ass by a horse? Why would a free society ban sx with animals or with your sons and daughters when you would not outlaw eating meat or using animals as guinea pigs, which is basically torture? Is torture better than rape?
Then ... about what you say ...
1. We are still far from that level of "freedom".
2. I don't think that freedom should be absolute: it wouldn't be functional for our social life. Imagine if we could make a choice about the color of the streetlights ... "I pass with red!" "And I pass with yellow!" ... "I want blue!".
3. Deviant sexual activities are anyway a problem for procreation at istinctive level, so that our societies tend to consider them "wrong". About incest, there is something basic also here: incest tends to generate genetic problems [we need to mix genes, to reduce mistakes in the DNA, as for I have understood]. I guess our instinct advices us about this. Anyway there is also a lot of cultural influence in similar social choices. In Ancient Egypt they didn't accept incest, but within the Royal Family it was considered even positive ... to preserve the purity of the sacred Royal Blood.
