German Version / Deutsche Version

Two 5,000-year old male skeletons unearthed near the city of Tell el Hammeh, in the southern Jordan river valley, could possibly be the world’s oldest known homosexuals in human history.

Is sodomy a health booster, a pleasure, a creative sensual practice – or a horrible sin that led to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah? Two 5000 years old male skeletons and some Old Testament, Genesis reading did not make me any wiser. Sodomy. Sodom and Gomorrah. Sin?

Sodomy – anal intercourse

Recently I read the word sodomy in an article title – which made me comment it (, German) – and think. And while subsequently researching sodomy I stumbled on this definition.


anal intercourse

Sodomy, definition

As a side note, the common signification of the word sodomy also depends on language. In German, sodomy is often used to describe sex with animals. Which is technically incorrect as this would be ‘Zoophilie’. This article does not focus on the German language use of sodomy.

Ok. Fine. So apparently most gays, lesbians and bisexuals are by definition – as defined by their technique of sexual intercourse – sodomists. Those 5000 year old male skeletons discovered at the exact same location Sodom and Gomorrah were once – what an impressive discovery, also regarding the position of the 2 skeletons, a strange combination of sensuality and death – only (seem to) further prove the point.

Those ‘lovers’ where found in the Southern Jordan River Valley. And where exactly? In the ancient ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah.


Sodomy (/ˈsɒdəmi/) 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. Originally, the term sodomy, which is derived from the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Book of Genesis, was commonly restricted to anal sex.Sodomy laws in many countries criminalized the behavior. In the Western world, many of these laws have been overturned or are not routinely enforced.
Sodomy, another definition, by Wikipedia


Above made my sodomy ‘research’ more complex. Anal and oral intercourse. Or sex with a non-human animal. Bestiality. Would sex with an AI capable roboter be sodomy? And what about non-procreative sexual activity.? Apparently, as some define sodomy, all sensual activity which is not strictly for procreation would be sodomy.

Another interesting aspect of sodomy is its origin, the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Is sodomy ‘wicked’?

Sodom and Gomorrah, notoriously sinful cities in the biblical book of Genesis, destroyed by “sulfur and fire” because of their wickedness (Genesis 19:24). Sodom and Gomorrah along with the cities of Admah, Zeboiim, and Zoar (Bela) constituted the five “cities of the plain,” and they are referenced throughout both the Old and New Testaments and the Qurʾān.

Sodom and Gomorrah

I choose the King James version of Genesis to highlight some Bible content related to Sodom and Gomorrah.

But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly
And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous
And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:  Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it. And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty’s sake. And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty’s sake. And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.

Genesis , King James Version

Facts? Nope.

Those 10 ‘righteous‘ humans could not be found and God’s displeasure with what was happening in Sodom and Gomorrah led to him sending 2 angels to destroy the city. Which leads to the conclusion that what happened in those 2 cities was very sinful and Gods reaction to such is a harsh one.

But wait. What exactly happened there? In fact, the Old Testament and more specifically Genesis does not tell us. Those two cities were destroyed – but there is no indication as to why. The definition of the word sonomy earlier in this article suggests that the reason would have been sinful sexual practices. Specifically one: Anal intercourse.

A publishing friend of mine said: ‘Anal intercourse is unnatural.’

The prostate, a.k.a. the “male G-spot,” is supposedly the source of mind-blowing orgasms. You just have to be brave enough to go looking for it.

Oh. Such a serious sin that made God kill the population of 2 whole cities is actually capable of delivering ‘mind-blowing orgasms‘?

Based on above information, one must assume that anal intercourse, or its (apparently) synonym, sodomy, is the reason for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as the Old New Testament and the Qurʾān tell us – and that it is a technique that is capable of producing mind blowing orgasms.

It may be able to help alleviate symptoms of an enlarged prostate.

It feels really freaking good.

Sodomy is unnatural

Stringently religious communities in general forbid any sensuality involved in sexuality. Or in other words, the experience of pleasure during love making is seen as a sin. For example, there are groups in fundamentalist jewish communities that use a blanket with a hole while having intercourse, thus ensuring that those two bodies to not touch and no pleasure is experienced.

Based on above, could it be that the amount of pleasure involved makes anal intercourse bad? That pleasure makes sodomy a sin?

Dolphins making ‘love’

Homosexual behavior in the animal kingdom is rife. One of the best-known examples is among bottlenose dolphins, with both males and females having encounters with members of the same sex. The exact reasons for the behavior are not well understood, but social bonding is thought to be a factor. Researchers in Australia are looking to solve the mystery. They recently observed big groups of dolphins engaging in what appeared to be homosexual behavior. A team from the Mandurah Dolphin Research Project in Western Australia noticed the males started spending quality time together after their mating season was over. “These dolphins, all but three of them juveniles, organized themselves in four subgroups in which they were observed engaging in socio-sexual behavior that included mounting and genital contact between individuals,” Krista Nicholson, of Murdoch University, told the Mandurah Mail.


As it seems both do dolphins have homoerotic experiences – and fun. So if sodomy, or anal intercourse, is enjoyed by dolphins, how can it be unnatural?

If one takes this articles information into account, one starts to wonder what sodomy really is. And further, what the origin of the word sodomy, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as recounted in the Old Testament, in Genesis, implies.

Here we have a word widely used but essentially of unknown content. Does sodomy relate to having fun during sex? And having fun makes sex such a horrible sin it made God destroy two cities? Or does sodomy relate to anal penetration, an apparently healthy practice both between man and woman, men and men or woman and woman which seems to provide amazing orgasms?

The Bible does not indicate what sodomy means. This holy book does not explain why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, just that the people in those two cities were not righteous.

The not righteous

Thus anal intercourse makes people not righteous?

Sodomy (anal intercourse) is still officially a crime in 14 US states.

Not righteous because it gives pleasure and is thus a horrible sin? Not righteous because it is unnatural – but practised by more ‘pure’ representants of nature that we humans seem to be, one of the smartest animals, dolphins?

Whatever Sodomy means and whatever Genesis means when it talks about the horrible sins of Sodom and Gomorrah’s inhabitants – many of us are (happy) sodomites. Even in conservative cultures.

Sodomy is widespread, healthy, gives pleasure. But is also a word that originates from Sodom and Gomorrah. A symbol for sensual sins which inspired controverse art.

‘The anal part is not made for sex’ my friend told me. Possibly. But then, the mouth is not made for giving sexual pleasure too. So is a blowjob sodomy too?

Sodomy. Sodom and Gomorrah. Sin.

But not everybody likes sodomy. Some not because it gives pleasure, and having pleasure in sex is a bad thing – to them. Some, because they believe it is unnatural – even if dolphins enjoy it. Some because they see it as dirty, ugly, unclean.

Fact is that the holy book does not tell us why Sodom and Gomorrah have been destroyed. Give us no indication as to the sins the people living there committed. But whatever they where, they were so widespread it was not possible to find 10 citizens who refrained of them.

Could it have been Sodomy? And if yes, why? Sodomy is healthy, pleasurable (oh, thats why?) and widespread. Both enjoyed by humans and some animals.

Nonetheless, the word sodomy is associated with something bad. Based on the assumption that anal sex is something that was highly popular in Sodom and Gomorrah. Facts? Nope.

Thus sodomy is a ‘bad’ word for a sensual technique. Loved by many. Despised by (many) others. And some even see it as a sin. There is no proof for this idea. But then, who needs proof when it is so easy to collectively connect the art of anal sex with such as ‘but the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly’?

I am a bit surprised. Surprised that God, the creator, would destroy two whole cities because the people there where (no proof) gay, or (no proof) sodomizing – or whatever one can imagine as sensual practices when one has absolutely no facts.

But whatever the Bible or God intended to tell me with the story of Sodom and Gomorrah – I do enjoy what is known generally as sodomy.

And you?
