Elon Musk attended a now notorious event at a Silicon Valley investor's home that has been described as a "sex party," but a representative told Business Insider that Musk said there was no lurid behavior while he was there.
Axios subsequently identified it as the home of former DFJ investor Steve Jurvetson, while another blog post written by entrepreneur Paul Biggar said that, while they didn't see any explicit sexual behavior, they did see Elon Musk in attendance.
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.
They said: "Elon was at the party for a couple hours and left around 1 a.m. after talking with several DFJ-funded entrepreneurs about technology and building companies. 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."
'As the evening wore on, several people lay down and started stroking each other.'
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 anti-climactic, but I didn’t see any sex or drugs," he wrote. I went home at 12:30 a.m., and I guess sex parties don’t really kick off until the boring f---ers go home. I didn’t exactly know it was a sex party, and I got bored at some point and went home."
He also wrote that the party was organised by DFJ as the official afterparty for their annual summit. A DFJ representative did not immediately respond to Business Insider's requests for comment.
