Kāmaja (कामज) refers to the “set arising from love of pleasure”, according to the Manusmṛti 7.50. Accordingly, “[...] hunting (mṛgayā), dice (akṣa), sleeping during the day (divāsvapna), censoriousness (parivāda), women (strī), intoxication (mada), musical triad (tauryatrika) and listless wandering (vṛthāṭyā) constitute the ten-fold set arising from the love of pleasure (kāmaja). [...] in the set arising from love of pleasure (kāmaja),—drinking (pāna), dice (akṣa), women (strī) and hunting (mṛgayā) are to be regarded as the four most pernicious (kaṣṭatama), in the order in which they are named”.
Kāmaja (‘arising from the love of pleasure’).—‘Kama’ is desire, from which they arise;—or they arise from a particular kind of pleasure;—or ‘Kāmya’ may mean arising from a particular experienced object.

Kāmaja (कामज) refers to “love”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.4.—Accordingly, as Umā (Durgā/Satī) spoke to the Gods:—“[...] Ever since I cast off my body born of Dakṣa on seeing my lord’s disrespect at the hands of my father at the altar of sacrifice, my lord Rudra is tormented by thoughts about me. [...] On account of me he was much distressed. He put on an abnormal dress. Ever since he forsook the excellent pleasure of love [i.e., kāmaja]. [...]”.
