Are Naturist documentaries legal where I live?

The Naturist documentaries and books that we sell are protected by federal law within the United States. They are protected by the First Amendment and subsequent federal case law. 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 59 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.

All publications, books, and videos sold by Enature.net (Body-n-Mind) have been reviewed by three independent attorneys and no item contains any visual depiction of "lascivious exhibition(s) of the genitals or pubic area", clothed or unclothed. Any legal questions or concerns should be directed to any one of the following independent attorneys, who are prominent experts in First Amendment law and provide legal review, advice and representation for Enature.net (Body-n-Mind):

  • Stanley Fleischman (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Barry Fisher (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Jeffrey Douglas (Santa Monica, CA)
  • Eugene Nathanson (New York, NY)

Copyright matters are handled by Lawyer Eugene Nathanson (New York, NY) and Elliott Disner (Los Angeles, CA). Legal reviews previously handled by Stanley Fleiscman, Esq., now deceased, are currently handled by Barry Fisher.

While many sites make legal claims, and many have copied our legal section, we are not aware of any Naturist company that so carefully and rigorously evaluates content to insure compliance with U.S. law. Not only are our DVDs reviewed but we also pay for regular legal written updates on U.S. case law. Where there is any doubt we err on the side of caution. The most recent 5 page legal review written exclusively for Enature was on June 19, 2008 by the nation?s leading expert in laws pertaining to Naturist content.

We also now have legal counsel on retainer in Europe. We have been shipping daily to our many European customers for 20+ years. Some of our films have been rated by the Australian Film Board. Those that have, received the general equivalent of a PG rating here in the U.S. We have been shipping daily to Australia and New Zealand for 20+ years as well. Our films and images have been reviewed and accepted for import by Canadian Customs.

United States Customs, upon careful review of our content, stated in person, "Continue to sell your Naturist material."

The Naturists presented in our documentaries have been practicing Naturism for generations and are eager to show others that ordinary people can and do enjoy the healthful freedom of Naturism.

Portrayals of Family Naturism in film continue to enjoy the same legal protection that they deserve and that they have since we began selling them on July 4, 1996.

Can I order by payment other than credit card?

Yes. We accept Check or Money Orders in U.S. Dollars payable to 'Enature'. The easiest way to order by check or money order is to use the shopping cart program on our website. Upon checkout, you will be asked to select a payment option. If you select check or money order and fill out the online form, it will provide a printable invoice with mailing instructions.

Alternatively, you can simply write the titles you wish to order on any piece of paper and send that along with payment to:

PO Box 15701
San Luis Obispo, CA 93406
United States

Please include $6.00 for shipping (that is a flat rate -- you can order unlimited titles for that single shipping rate)

Is there a discount for ordering several titles?

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 1 video on 10 separate occasions you pay $60.00 for U.S. Priority Mail.

However, if you order 10 videos at one time you pay $6.00 for U.S. Priority Mail (a $56.00 savings for purchasing the entire quantity at one time).

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

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.

Where is my order?

If you have placed an order and it is taking longer than expected to arrive, here are some possible reasons:

  1. Some previous customers are still mailing orders to our old address in Santa Barbara. This will add at least a week, as it takes a few days for us to receive the orders.
  2. At some apartment and/or office buildings, the postal carrier will hold larger boxes. Please check with your postal carrier.
  3. Your credit card or check may have been declined by the bank. We try to e-mail customers when this occurs but sometimes no e-mail address is provided or the customer has trouble receiving e-mail.
  4. Surface mail overseas can sometimes take up to 10 weeks.
  5. The address provided may have been incorrect. In all such cases the packages have always arrived back here but it sometimes takes several weeks. Again we will try to e-mail the customer in such a situation. We currently have 5 paid for orders sitting in our office unclaimed -- after several attempts to reach the customer who paid for them.
  6. On a couple of occasions neighbors or roommates have picked up the customers' packages and forgotten to mention it to the customer for a few days.
  7. On no occasion in over 50,000 orders has the U.S. Postal Service ever lost a single order sent by Enatue. On less than 10 occasions the orders have taken more than 2 weeks beyond their expected arrival times.

Who is Enature.net?

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.

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 100+ Naturist documentary films.

What is the Point of Nudism anyway?

Freedom from the physical and social restraints of clothing. Naturism brings the Naturist one step closer to the Natural elements and other Naturists. It's a freedom that is difficult to describe in words and so we invite you to view the Naturist lifestyle as presented in the many authentic Naturist videos here at Enature.net.
