Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha are considered as the four goals of life according to Hinduism.
One might argue that Moksha is the highest amongst all four.
In the remaining three - Dharma, Artha and Kama - which is higher? Or, is it even valid to compare them?
Also, if Kama (fulfillment of desires) is considered one of the goals, why are texts like Kamasutra frowned upon as exemplified in this question.
When Artha and Kama are part of the Hindu religion as goals, should texts written on them not be considered as religious texts?
