Elon Musk: So-called Valley sex party was just 'nerds on a couch'

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".

Elon Musk attended a Silicon Valley bash that has been described as a "sex party" in Emily Chang's upcoming book "Brotopia."

In a statement to Business Insider, a representative for the Tesla and SpaceX founder confirmed he was there, but that he believed it was a "corporate" costume-themed party and spent his time there talking about technology and business before leaving at 1 a.m.

The VC firm issued an apology, reported by Recode, in which it 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", and there was no indication that it would become one after he left", the statement read.

On Wednesday, Paul Biggar, an entrepreneur who attended the party, described his experience without naming Jurvetson or DFJ titled, "That party was way worse than it sounds".

"I went home at 12:30am, and I guess sex parties don't really kick off until the boring f-ckers go home". He adds, "But I know who was there, what the party was, how it was communicated".

"That DFJ party was boring and corporate, with zero sex or nudity anywhere". A DFJ representative did not immediately respond to Business Insider's requests for comment.

Jurvetson, who left Draper Fisher Jurvetson late past year amid allegations of misconduct, hosted an afterparty for a DFJ conference at his home in Half Moon Bay, according to Axios, which cites text from the book by Bloomberg TV journalist Emily Chang.

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

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. 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.

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

Earlier this month, an excerpt from the book talked of tech parties where sex, drugs and alcohol were present.

An unnamed female entrepreneur told Chang: "If you do participate in these sex parties, don't ever think about starting a company or having someone invest in you". Musk told Wired: "Nerds on a couch are not a 'cuddle puddle.' I was hounded all night by DFJ-funded entrepreneurs, so went to sleep around 1am".
