There is a difference in the sin of adultery when a non-Jew has forbidden relations with a non-Jew or with a Jewess.
A non-Jew is only liable for a capital sin of adultery with another man's non-Jewish wife if he (the adulterer) has normal relations with her (see topic 3:1). On the other hand, if the married woman is a Jewess, he is liable even if he cohabits with her in in an abonormal way, as is the Torah's law for Jews.
