When we violate sacred laws we lose the joy of our body.
The devil has no body, and herein is his punishment. We don't seem to realize that when violate the chief laws of the body regarding life and chastity that we, in some measure, partake of the same punishment. We cannot partake of the joy that is reserved for the saints while acting like sinners. Men who are involved in pornography quickly find little joy in their own wife. God will not be mocked in sacred matters, and we can never misbehave in these matters and still enjoy the felicity, family, and marital joy that he reserves for his saints. We may still have a body, but we have lost the joy of it when we anger God by violating his most sacred laws - the sacred nature of human life and of chastity.
