Behind a nondescript storefront in the city's Warehouse District is what officials are calling a "swingers" sex club, a private place for couples and others to meet and swap partners.

Club 307, located across the street from O'Brien Field - less than two blocks from Peoria Police Department - has operated under the radar and apparently is doing so legally.

Patrons are reportedly charged a fee for membership, which essentially provides a place for people to meet and have sex, city officials say. Alcohol also is provided.

An ordinance going before the City Council on Tuesday would outlaw such a business.

"A lot of the activities that have reportedly taken place there are the activities outlined in the ordinance," Mayor Jim Ardis said Thursday.

Currently, there are no laws on the books prohibiting a business allowing people to engage in or view live sex acts.

"Charging a fee for membership and providing alcohol - that is not legal - and in terms of the actual swapping, and the sex parties and that sort of stuff, we didn't have a specific ordinance on the books," Ardis continued, adding, "We're definitely addressing it."

Danny Laud, owner of Club 307, could not be reached for comment. ...
