In common use, an orgy is when more than two people have sex together, sometimes also called group sex. This dates back to prehistoric ages, recorded in many ancient civilizations.

Orgy could also mean any activity done without limits.

Originally, the word comes from Latin. There it referred to a feast (or a banquet) of a rich citizen. When the Romans ate they were almost lying down, and the food was brought to them by slaves. These slaves would also provide the entertainment which usually consisted of music and dancing slaves.
