Illinois Prostitution

The Law – 720 ILCS 5/11-14

A person commits Prostitution when they knowingly perform, offers to perform or agrees to perform any act of sexual penetration for anything of value, or any touching or fondling of the sex organs of one person by another person, for anything of value, for the purposes of sexual arousal or gratification.

While most know the exchange of money for sexual acts is unlawful, Illinois Prostitution encompasses more than the mere exchange of money under its Prostitution law. The law prohibits the exchange of “anything of value,” for sexual acts. This means that, in addition to currency, other tangible items (e.g., jewelry, electronics, the payment of a phone bill) would be sufficient consideration to trigger the Prostitution law.

The law also provides immunity and/or affirmative defense to those who are arrested for committing Prostitution if they are either the victims of involuntary servitude or trafficking at the time of the alleged act of prostitution or if they are under the age of 18.
