Au pairs can be male or female. Male au pairs who are generally known as au pair boys or bro pairs may also register on our website to search for a host family on an international basis.

The majority of host families on AuPairWorld prefer female au pairs, since au pairing has traditionally been considered a "girl's" job. Nevertheless, we believe that males and females nowadays equally qualify to perform the tasks of an au pair. Moreover, we have read some testimonials of boy-only host families whose experiences with male au pairs were fantastic since their sons could perfectly identify with their "elder brothers".

Therefore, we encourage all our male au pairs to make their profile really attractive in order to find the perfect host family.
