Yup. And Florida is far from alone, as I'm sure Harvey knows.

In terms of "blue laws", "sodomy" is whatever sexual activity some legislature
considered depraved and deserving of smiting by the Almighty. Terrific, huh?
This can mean anything they saw or imagined in a Cecil B. DeMille silent film.
Including fornication.

Oddly, "gomorrahmy" is seldom legislated against.
