Not inhabitants of Sodom, but those "devoted" (qedeeshim) to unnatural lust in Ashtoreth's honour, as a religious rite! (Deuteronomy 23:17; 1 Kings 14:24; 2 Kings 23:7; Job 36:14 margin) There were women similarly "desecrated" to lust as a religious rite (Genesis 38:21-22; Hosea 4:14; translated 1 Kings 22:38), "the dogs licked his blood while the 'harlots' (zonot) were bathing in the pool" early in the morning, as their custom was. So Septuagint.
