typically refers to anal sex, equivalent to the word buggery, although sodomy also extended to anything that wasn’t vaginal intercourse, including heterosexual oral sex. Sodomy was a crime in much of the world in the past, and in some places still is.
The word comes from the Biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah.
