it is not illegal for U.S. residents to conduct commerce with foreign companies. Many do.
Whether is a good idea to have a U.S. presence is a separate question. Increasingly U.S. residents are being targeted by scams from foreign countries. I myself have seen a number of frauds being perpetrated from England, Canada, and a multitude of African, Pacific and Asian countries. There are concerns surrounding identity theft and just plain failure to deliver purchased good and services. A number of "new" programs keep the public on heightened alert whenever business is conducted with a foreign company.
I am not sure if you transact business in dollars or other foreign currency. This could also be a concern to American consumers.
Your consumer base would be more trusting if you had a U.S. presence. This at least creates the potential and appearance for resolving legal issues within the U.S. Being a web based product shields you from some of the visibility of being a foreign company. However, once your location becomes more publicly now you may turn away some potential business. Certainly your competition will know where you are based.
My recommendation would be for your company to main a local presence in the U.S.

Jack:My concerns is more in the female escort, in this foreign country prostitution is 100% legal, however, I don't disclose includes sex on the package,, we leave it to the men imagination, we address the female escorts as tour guides their duties includes both. Just like in the county in Nevada where sex is legal, they don't take payment over the internet according to the brothels, this was a concern to me and for my business to conduct register the company in the U.S. We have more of cleaner website for the upscale man who wants to go on vacation, nothing cheesy.
