Elon Musk confusingly attends sex party
San Francisco Jan 14 (IANS) Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk attended an infamously lewd party -- which he thought was a costume event -- at the house of American businessman and venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson but did not participate in sexual activities.
According to a spokesperson for the billionaire entrepreneur Musk understood it to be a venture capital-hosted costume party but on learning that it was not left early.
In an email to Business Insider Musk s spokesperson wrote: "Elon was at the party for a couple of hours and left around 1 a.m. after talking about technology and building companies with several entrepreneurs funded by American venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ)."
"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 email quoted him as saying.
The incident came to fore after an extract from Bloomberg reporter Emily Chang s forthcoming book "Brotopia" detailed a party at a venture capitalist s house that saw drug-taking and open sexual behaviour.
Following this tech entrepreneur Paul Biggar wrote in a blog post that while "they didn t see any explicit sexual behaviour they did see Elon Musk in attendance".
"I don t want this to be anti-climactic but I didn t see any sex or drugs. I went home at 12.30 a.m. and I guess sex parties don t really kick off until the boring f**kers go home " he wrote.
"I didn t exactly know it was a sex party and I got bored at some point and went home " he added.
