What sort of license do I pursue to start a (legal) escort agency in Chicago/Illinois?

I've been working on starting an agency with a former escort friend of mine, and haven't had much luck googling for what sort of license I'd need. I have no desire to run an illegal operation, and I know that there ARE legal companies in the state, but they're not very likely to help me start up their competition, eh?
My partner and I have seen that all the agencies in the state, legal or no, seem to fall under a couple categories:
1) Force/"strongly encourage" the women to do things that are blantantly against the law, and then disavow them if anything happens.
2) Operate within the legal guidelines, but just treat their contractors as a paycheck.
3) Neither of the above, but don't really do much of anything, either... just wait for their cut.
So, yeah. We've been brainstorming, and we're certain we've got a business model that will be beneficial to both employer and contractor. So, any help here?
