Local ordinances to regulate adult entertainment facilities and obscenity.
(a) Definitions. In this Act:
"Specified anatomical area" means human genitals or pubic region, buttocks, anus, or the female breast below a point immediately above the top the areola that is less than completely or opaquely covered, or human male genitals in a discernibly turgid state even if completely or opaquely covered.
"Specified sexual activities" means (i) human genitals in a state of sexual stimulation or excitement; (ii) acts of human masturbation, sexual intercourse, fellatio, or sodomy; (iii) fondling, kissing, or erotic touching of specified anatomical areas; (iv) flagellation or torture in the context of a sexual relationship; (v) masochism, erotic or sexually oriented torture, beating, or the infliction of pain; (vi) erotic touching, fondling, or other such contact with an animal by a human being; or (vii) human excretion, urination, menstruation, or vaginal or anal irrigation as part of or in connection with any of the activities set forth in items (i) through (vi).
(b) Ordinance to regulate adult entertainment facilities. A county may adopt by
ordinance reasonable regulations concerning the operation of any business: (i) defined as
an adult entertainment facility in Section 5-1097.5 of this Act or (ii) that offers or
provides activities by employees, agents, or contractors of the business that involve
exposure of specified anatomical areas or performance of specified sexual activities in
view of any patron, client, or customer of the business. A county ordinance may also
prohibit the sale, dissemination, display, exhibition, or distribution of obscene materials
or conduct. A county adopting an ordinance to regulate adult entertainment facilities may
authorize the State's Attorney to institute a civil action to restrain violations of that
ordinance. In that proceeding, the court shall enter such orders as it considers necessary to abate the violation and to prevent the violation from continuing or from being renewed
in the future. In addition to any injunctive relief granted by the court, an ordinance may
further authorize the court to assess fines of up to $1,000 per day for each violation of the
ordinance, with each day in violation constituting a new and separate offense.
