What was the compelling state interest to regulate heterosexual sodomy until 1960?
Cultural norms. It's hard not to notice that all kinds of sexual deviancy, and the effects thereof, took off in the 1960s.

Chicken or egg?
Which came first, the state courts and state legislatures jettisoning sodomy laws, or the debauch sex, drugs, and rockn roll of the 1960s and 1970s?
Those cultural norms were also moral norms. There IS no compelling interest for the Supremes to overturn extant moral norms, except in the fevered minds of the 6.
