14And God both raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.

15Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!

16Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For "the two," He says, "shall become one flesh."

17But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

The main reason is that the body belongs to the Lord and must be treated so. We must join (literally 'glue') ourselves to God in Spirit and not to a harlot in flesh. Seeing prostitutes actually 'glues' a person to their soul and causes soul ties that are very hard to break. Such people defile not only themselves but the other party and , if they are Christians, the body of Christ.
