Sodomy laws

From dKosopedia

Sodomy laws are laws that prohibit consentual oral and/or anal sex. Often they are enforced on a discriminatory basis with an intent to persecute gays and lesbians. They are now unconstitutional in the United States. Historically, "sodomy" has been used to define any sexual practices beyond male/female missionary position intercourse. In the United States, it was not uncommon to be executed for acts under this definition of sodomy up through the 1800's.
