Everyday approximately 750.000 men search online for webcam sex with children, a rapidly growing industry. By creating a fictional, virtual 10-year old Filipino named Sweetie Terre des Hommes has unmasked over a 1.000 of these felons. It also gained worldwide attention for webcam child sex tourism: the UN has placed the subject on its agenda for human rights. Sweetie has shown the world a new way of tracing felons of this type. Six men have been prosecuted to date.
