In 2013, the German Federal Criminal Police Office registered 4,317 websites containing child sexual abuse material.

Since 2005, the project “Kein Täter Werden” (Don’t Offend) offers free and confidential therapeutic treatment to those with a ‘sexual preference for children’. 251 people completed the program, which can be undertaken in 11 different centers in Germany.

Victims of trafficking for sexual purposes in Germany originate from within the country as well as Bulgaria and Romania. 67,000 unaccompanied minors arrived in Germany in 2015 alone; they are extremely vulnerable to trafficking for sexual purposes.
