The Naturist documentaries that we sell are legal in every city, every state and every county inside the United States. They are protected by the First Amendment and are not subject to local obscenity laws or ordinances. The depiction of adults and children nude in the visual media has enjoyed constitutional protection in the United States since 1958, when the Supreme Court vacated a Court of Appeals finding that Sunshine & Health magazine could be obscene (Sunshine Book Co. v. Summerfield, Postmaster General, 355 U.S. 372). The right to depict adults and children in innocent nude poses has been upheld without a pause for 41 years. In case after case, the Supreme Court and lower courts have always upheld the constitutionality of "nudity without more," specifically referring to the nudist depiction as a fully constitutional form of expression. Our documentaries are widely sold in all of Asia, Europe, South America, Canada, Australia and Africa. The only exception may be countries where nudity of any kind is banned, i.e. Iraq, Syria, and Iran.
Yes. In the United States, Canada and many other countries, a format for VHS called 'NTSC' is used. 'NTSC' is the format that all VHS tapes in the U.S. use, most people are just not aware of it -- these are the same regular VHS tapes you always use. This is the format that we will send, unless you specifically request 'PAL' format VHS tapes. To see which format your country uses enter here.
This feedback regarding Australian VCRs may be of value to Australian and other customers from countries using PAL:
"In Australia (which, as you're aware, uses PAL) almost all video machines sold these days - even the cheapest ones - have a "NTSC playback" feature, which allows you to play (but not record) tapes which are VHS NTSC. (However, the quality is not as good as the PAL, of course, but it is quite acceptable)." -- a customer.
Yes. We build this discount into our flat rate shipping price.
Say, for example, you plan on ordering 10 videos or books. If you:order:

We ship out orders the day after they arrive here. If you order by phone or Internet your order will ship out the next business day. If you order by mail allow a few days for us to receive your order. In the U.S., Priority Mail typically takes 3 business days (but can vary from 2-5 business days) and Express Mail takes 1-2 business days and is insured. Air mail to Canada usually takes 1 week. Elsewhere Air Mail takes 2-3 weeks and surface mail 6-8 weeks. On rare occasions delivery time may take longer.
If you have placed an order and it is taking longer than expected to arrive, here are some possible reasons:
Enature.net originally began in 1995 (under the name Body-n-Mind) selling art and photography books and other niche market titles by small publishers. In late 1996 we shifted our focus to Naturist Book and Video Documentaries. We still have a few of the art and photography book titles, which relate to nudes in nature (those by David Hamilton and Jock Sturges) and some that are on their way to selling out (Sally Mann's titles.)
Enature.net is proud to support the ideals of Naturism by presenting documentaries to an expanding audience. Your purchase of these videos and books provides financial and moral support to those who practice Naturism as a part of a healthy lifestyle. This support helps ensure that body positive and environmentally sensitive views survive and flourish.
We are also the publishers of Holy Nature the Book, as well as 2 upcoming books, and 4 new videos.
