This is actually a misunderstanding of both tantra and the Kamsutra itself. Sanskrit literature is full of many erotic and poignant displays of physical love.
By sheer coincidence, Lance Dane, who has been obsessed with love for Indian pictorial and plastic arts, showed me some of the photographs he had taken during his more than a quarter of a century’s search for beauty in art. For the first time, in my own pilgrimages, I realised how, underneath the harsh discriminations of latter-day orthodoxies, the free spirits of our country had accepted love between man and woman as the source of pleasure and progeny, and treated the themes of physical union to evoke bliss, as in the works of Kalidasa of the fourth century A. In fact, in the Hindu way of life, spirituality is not against pleasure, it is seen as transcending the need for pleasure. The fundamental goal in the Hindu way of life is liberation, known as mukti or moksha. Every aspect of life was thus tuned to help an individual achieve this lofty objective, Knowing very well that physicality and sexuality were an integral part of man and woman, the rishi Vatsyayana put together the Kamsutra as a manual for human sexual behavior, to help a couple achieve marital and physical bliss, and thus move beyond the need for pleasure instead of desiring for it constantly.
The sexual union in Sanskrit literature was also seen as a metaphor for the union of man with cosmos, of pinda and andanda, the micro with the macro. Thus sexuality was a means towards moksha, and this was one of the pillars of tantric practice. Thus, we have many depiction of intercourse and sex on the walls of India’s ancient temples. Khajuraho and Konark are perhaps the most famous.
This was not the reason for these depictions. Indeed, as Alain Danielou and Balagangadhara the 64 sexual positions given by Vatsyayana are only a small aspect of the Kamsutra. Much more space is devoted to the attitude of mind and body needed to live a healthy life, and the behaviour required of husband and wife to get along with each other. I have increasingly felt, since the 1920ss, when I had the benefit of talking many times to Havelock Ellis, about the values of the Kamsutra, that the book must be uplifted from the gutter press to some sanctity, if only we could find some art works, apart from the sculptures of Khajuraho and Konark, of aesthetic significance, which could meaningfully illustrate the aphorisms of Vatsyayana.
