I think media mail can be shipped anywhere. The one extra thing is a customs form on some stuff.

Should be fine anywhere. I suppose there could be some countries where they don't want you to send porn? I would think anything commonly swapped here would be fine :)

Becca, no porn to military stationed in Muslim countries...such as Afghanastan.  Noticed it on the banned list while DS was stationed there, along with alcohol and a couple other items.

All media mail just takes a lot longer to get overseas.  All other classes get loaded as received at port, but media mail waits for a full load before it is sent.
