Hermes' Web and Barrier
This kit comes with an 8" Web and barrier for your use.

Hermes' Web, in terms of cybersex, illustrates the normal life of the
ego and the hidden world of cybersex down below the barrier, which
works to keep it hidden. Cybersex is about having a hidden world with
powerful, intense core-level needs. On the surface, in the ego, there
is much denial. There are also passwords, deletions, and other
technical ways to guard the barrier so no one discovers what is going
on below.

Hoberman Sphere
People hide what is in the core, rather than deal with it directly. As
long as it's kept locked up, it's safe. But the Internet offers a whole
new possibility. People can open up that locked world, expand it
outwards, and find entire new worlds to explore in a myriad of
directions, colors, flavors, paraphilias, etc. When someone enters the
World Wide Web, it expands, like the Hoberman, to meet every need
and fantasy, however bizarre and unusual. It's an intoxicating feeling
to have that tiny secret world open up into a whole universe with
numerous forms of exotic life.
