If your idea is to sell sex, forget about it. You are crossing into criminal territory in Oregon. If, however, your idea is to sell escort services such as "wing-man" or "wing-woman" these can be doable, but everyone involved in the transaction must be clear that THERE IS NO SEX. You need to go in for a full, in-depth legal consult for your business. Again, I warn you: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SELL SEX SERVICES. No matter how you think you can "spin" it or conceal it, you're just going to get into trouble. Also, whatever you do, make sure to pay your taxes!

You will be arrested if you start an escort business. It is illegal and there is no way to make it seem legal or shield it. You are a pimp and should find a better way to make money than to exploit women.

Yes there is however, there are some dicey legal requirements and prohibitions in the criminal code that you may need to be very aware of. GET A GOOD CRIMINAL LAWYER who understands the business.

In Illinois, prostitution is illegal and so is running a prostitution service. In Illinois, prostitution includes sexual penetration or any touching or fondling of the sex organs in exchange for pay or anything of value.

Prostitution is illegal and so is the business of running a prostitution service. You cannot get a license to run an illegal business.
