Elon Musk once attended a Silicon Valley 'sex party'

Elon Musk Insists A Drug-Fuelled Silicon Valley Sex Party Never Happened

Biggar and Chang differ in their takes of the night, with the former saying that he had not seen "any sex or drugs". The party was private but immediately followed a nearby DFJ one-day conference and was attended by some DFJ partners and staff, leading some to the impression that it was a DFJ-sanctioned event.

In November, Jurvetson stepped down from his venture firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson as well as took leave from the boards of Tesla and SpaceX, following an internal investigation.

"Another party attendee told Business Insider that "[he didn't] want this to be anti-climactic, but [he] didn't see any sex or drugs...[he] went home at 12:30 am, and [he] guess [es] sex parties don't really kick off until the boring f-kers go home.

"I didn't exactly know it was a sex party, and I got bored at some point and went home".

Tesla confirmed in statement to Business Insider that Musk attended the party for a couple hours, but "left around 1am after talking with several DFJ-funded entrepreneurs about technology and building companies".

A woman dubbed Jane Doe claimed to Chang that she was stroked and given molly during a "cuddle puddle" at the party, attended by several titans of tech.

It rained a lot in the San Francisco Bay Area this week and every time I saw a puddle in the road, I couldn't help thinking about Silicon Valley's sex parties.

A rep for DFJ told Recode, "We were dismayed to learn of behavior at the party that was completely at odds with DFJ's culture, which has been. built on the values of respect and integrity".

Would You Drink Raw Water?
The fact that people are voluntarily forgoing treated water was met with concern, horror and shock on social media. Hello, my name is Vibrio cholerae and you, my drinker, are in for a really crappy time .

In his blog post, Biggar said he had not witnessed any sex or drug taking at the event either, which he described as "a top-tier VC [venture capital] firm's official party".

Musk later directly addressed the incident in a statement to Wired, hitting out at Chang for "salacious nonsense". "She conflated what happens in [San Francisco] sex clubs in the Tenderloin, which have been around long before Silicon Valley was anything, with boring [Vice Chairman] parties on the Peninsula". That is misleading to the public and she should be ashamed.

As of now, there's little evidence to suggest that this Silicon Valley sex party actually exists, and it appears that this shindig at Jurvetson's house may have actually been an innocent costume party rather than some sort of orgy.

"If you want wild parties, you're in the wrong place". Nothing remotely worth writing about happened.

"Nerds on a couch are not a 'cuddle puddle, '" Musk said, referring to a harrowing term used in the excerpt.

Musk denied Silicon Valley was rife with sex parties, and denied the DFJ party having "sex or nudity anywhere". "The most fun thing was Steve lighting a model rocket around midnight".

Other entrepreneurs including Mary Lou Jepsen and Jason Calacanis have also denied any explicit activity at the party.

We think that Musk's explanation for accidently attending is much more likely than some massive coverup scheme, especially considering his track record of being a pretty normal and decent guy, but the world may never be truly convinced given the secrecy surrounding the freakish Silicon Valley sex party.
