(Rambam sefaria, HebrewBooks, Chabad.org)
A non-jewish man cannot have relations with:

  1. (a woman who was) his father's wife
  2. his mother
  3. a (another) man's wife
  4. his maternal sister
  5. a man
  6. an animal

Does this include the passive non-jewish party?
Is the woman in these cases (1-4, 6) also subjected to death?
How about the passive man (by case number 5)?

  • 1. His father's present wife. Gentiles do not keep relations.

  • there seems to be evidence that she does have at least the 6 mitzvot since a woman is not listed here sefaria.org/Mishneh_Torah,_Kings_and_Wars.10.2 (end)

  • Seems that the first and last question are one to me. Mar 27, 2018 at 16:01

1 Answer 1

  1. Both are liable if they are consenting adults.
  2. The same prohibitions regarding to man also applies to woman . The reason is that all these references are derived from a verse which the talmud Sanhedrin 57b interprets as referring to both, man and woman.

  • does this include a woman with an animal?
