The Prevention Network Dunkelfeld

In 2005 the Institute of Sexology and Sexual Medicine started the "Prevention Project Dunkelfeld" which has now developed into a nationwide network of outpatient clinics providing treatment for self-identifying and help-seeking pedophiles and hebephiles outside of the legal system. It aims to help these men to guarantee continuous sexual self-control to prevent child sexual abuse and child pornography consumption.
