  • A term used to describe what is considered an unnatural sexual act, most often today meaning anal or oral intercourse. Biblical in its origin, the term has also been used to refer to other unholy acts that occurred in Sodom, including rape and torture of animals. In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Lawrence v. Texas that laws prohibiting same-sex sodomy were unconstitutional violations of privacy. For more information, see Lawrence v. Texas (2003).
