(Only available in German)



"Loverboys“ or "Romeo pimps“ are young men who pretend to be in love with a girl or a young woman in order to lure or force her into prostitution later. This is a form of human trafficking.

The contents and materials on the website aim to inform and educate about the "loverboy" tactic. The prevention program "Love without Coercion" can be implemented as a workshop by teachers and other persons with a pedagogical background. The name is meant to express that violence and coercion must never play a role in relationships, as is always the case in "loverboy" relationships. Aspects of a healthy romantic relationship, increasing self-confidence, online safety and the topic of pornography are also addressed.

    "The content of the workshop is fantastic and oriented to the lifestyles of the students. I particularly liked the extremely professional execution of the entire program. From the first planning phase everything was clear, agreements were kept, conditions and requirements were communicated in a timely manner. Everything went like clockwork!”

    Jonas, 14, Student

    “I liked that we talked a lot about 'loverboys' and had the methods explained to us so that we can protect ourselves. Thanks a lot!”

    Christina D., Teacher

    "The 'loverboy' tactic is a danger that can affect any student, regardless of his/her ethnic or social background. It is important to us to warn against it. We also want to encourage students to think about their own desires in and ideas of a healthy relationship and to strengthen their self-confidence. The material 'Love without Coercion' serves this purpose in an excellent way! I am glad to have it as a resource."

    Lea, 15, Student

    "I liked that we learned how to increase our self-confidence and that the atmosphere was relaxed and the activities fun (videos, role-playing, etc.)."
