Sodomy or buggery (British English) is generally anal or oral sex between people, or sexual activity between a person and a non-human animal (bestiality), but it may also mean any non-procreative sexual activity.

- Sodomy

While anal sex is commonly associated with male homosexuality, research shows that not all gay men engage in anal sex and that it is not uncommon in heterosexual relationships.

- Anal sex

In cultures influenced by Abrahamic religions, the law and the church established sodomy as a transgression against divine law or a crime against nature.

- Homosexuality

The condemnation of anal sex between males, however, predates Christian belief.

- Homosexuality

In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples, and have mostly been used to target homosexuals.

- Sodomy

The term buggery originated in medieval Europe as an insult used to describe the rumored same-sex sexual practices of the heretics from a sect originating in Bulgaria, where its followers were called bogomils; when they spread out of the country, they were called buggres (from the ethnonym Bulgars).
