carnal copulation in a manner against nature; buggery
Origin: [From Sodom. a country mentioned in the Bible: cf. F. sodomite.]
Sodomy is any non-penile/vaginal copulation-like act, such as oral or anal sex, or sex between a person and an animal. The word is derived from the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in chapters 18 and 19 of the Book of Genesis in the Bible. So-called "sodomy laws" in many countries criminalized not only these behaviors, but other disfavored sexual activities as well, but in the Western world, many of these laws have been overturned, or are not routinely enforced.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
sod′om-i, n. unnatural sexuality, so called because imputed to the inhabitants of Sodom.—n. Sod′omite, an inhabitant of Sodom: one guilty of sodomy.—adj. Sodomit′ical.—adv. Sodomit′ically.
