in a nutshell

„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 Coersion" 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.
