Fran├žois Elluin, Sodomites provoking the wrath of God, from Le pot pourri de Loth, 1781

Sodomy is anal or oral sex. The word sodomy is derived from Sodom and Gomorrah in the Book of Genesis. Some countries have passed laws making sodomy a crime. Some of these sodomy laws have been overturned in the western world. In some places, they are not routinely enforced.
