the famous Kama Sutra states that homosexual sex “is to be engaged in and enjoyed for its own sake as one of the arts.” love is regarded as an eternal force. It is seen as devotion between two people, whether romantic or platonic. common believe love and devotion are important in attaining Moksha or Liberation from the cycle of rebirths.
Sex was promoted within the context of a loving couple – usually heterosexual. On the other hand extremely ascetic schools of thought would have viewed sex as a distraction from the pursuit of Moksha.
- Romantic love is only natural between a man and a woman, and it is impossible for two men or two women to experience the same form of love.
- Since romantic love is only possible between a man and a woman, sex between two men or two women can only be the product of lust, and lust is wrong; therefore homosexual activities are wrong.
- One of the three functions of marriage is Prajaa, the progeny for perpetuation of one’s family. A homosexual couple cannot procreate, and thus cannot be married.
- Premarital and extramarital sex are wrong, and because homosexuals cannot marry, they should not engage in sexual relationships.
