Oblivious Elon Musk thought Silicon Valley 'sex party' was a costume party

However, Musk himself has hit back at claims it was a sex party - claiming "nothing remotely worth writing about happened".

The representative said he spent his time there talking about "technology and building companies".

Biggar said the event was the official party for a VC firm he did not name, hosted and attended by general partners in the firm, and included portfolio founders, CEOs, and entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk.

In the book, author and Bloomberg journalist Emily Chang described one party in particular which featured drugs and group sex. Axios subsequently identified it as the home of former DFJ investor Steve Juvertson, while another blog post written by entrepreneur Paul Biggar said that, while they didn't see any explicit sexual behaviour, they did see Elon Musk in attendance.

DFJ issued a statement, Recode reported, in which the firm said: "We were dismayed to learn of behavior at the party that was completely at odds with DFJ's culture, which has been, and will continue to be, built on the values of respect and integrity. His impression was that it was a corporate party with a costume theme, not a 'sex party'".

Biggar, who left the party at 12.30 a.m., also wrote that he didn't see any sex.

"I don't want this to be anticlimactic, but I didn't see any sex or drugs", he wrote.

On the other hand, entrepreneur Paul Biggar said in a Medium post that he was at the party and even though he left at 12:30 a.m. before it really kicked off, he can confirm that numerous details in Chang's depiction are accurate.

"I didn't exactly know it was a sex party, and I got bored at some point and went home". Guests were shuttled from the summit to the party by the firm.

In a statement to Business Insider, a spokesperson confirmed the Tesla and SpaceX CEO had attended the event.

In November, Jurvetson left his venture capital firm after allegations of sexual harassment were made against him.

Doe found herself on the floor with two couples, including a male entrepreneur and his wife.

But Chang detailed that there were "several people laid down and started stroking one another.in what became a sizeable cuddle puddle". One venture capitalist, dressed up as a bunny (it's unclear how this fit into the edge-of-the-earth theme), offered Jane Doe some powder in a plastic bag. A number of investors and entrepreneurs thought the tales were "not real Silicon Valley parties, they were some burners that just happened to be in San Francisco and these outsiders are calling it a tech party", he says, adding, "I was there and I can lend some of my credibility".

Critics have since raised questions about the appropriateness of the alleged event and the risk of exploitation.

Earlier this month, a revealed sordid tales of Silicon Valley sex parties. "Using power to deny access to women, then providing access so long as they have sex with you; that's abuse, and that's f--ed up". Those doors get shut.
