Elon Musk once attended a Silicon Valley 'sex party'

Elon Musk once attended a Silicon Valley 'sex party'”

Journalist Emily Chang is has written a new book titled Brotopia, which aims to expose Silicon Valley for its "orgiastic" wild side; according to her account, the source of so much wealth in this country is also a bacchanalian pleasure fest full of drugs, sex, and money.

In response to our request for comment, a Tesla spokesman said Thursday: "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". A separate blog post by entrepreneur Paul Biggar said that he didn't see any sex.

According to Chang, a typical Silicon Valley sex party had a strict guest list with security guards at the door. Parties also take place in Napa Valley châteaus, beachfront home in Malibu or as far as yachts in Ibiza.

One young female attendee, who chose not to use her real name, recounted the events of a June 2017 party: she said almost a hundred power-players in the industry converged on a room "blanketed in plush white faux fur and pillows, where, as the evening wore on, several people lay down and started stroking one another".

An anonymous woman who spoke to Chang-termed a "founder hounder" for her tendency to pursue wealthy Silicon Valley figures-said that these men would take women on dates that were supposed to be romantic, "but instead it's charged because no one would fuck them in high school". He raised concerns about the potential for abuse and exploitation, questioned the necessity of a "cuddle puddle" at a company party.

"These sex parties happen so often among the premier V.C. and founder crowd that this isn't a scandal or even really a secret, I've been told; it's a lifestyle choice".

Chang says that numerous guests actually turn up with their wives, husbands or partners with open relationships supposedly becoming more common in tech circles.

While Elon Musk and his reps claim that there was nothing unusual going on at the Silicon Valley sex party, it's important to keep in mind that Musk has a lot to lose if he were to be outed as part of some secretive sex ring. "You're damned if you do, damned if you don't".

Another said: 'It's very hard to create a personal connection with a male investor, and if you succeed, they become attracted to you. I couldn't escape it here'. With the majority of tech employees being predominantly male and caucasian, the majority of power and influence is in the hands of one homogenous group.

How can one ever tell what will happen at a party after one leaves? You make a product, and it touches people's lives for years'.

Chang spoke of Silicon Valley's "bro-centric" culture, which she reports is dominated by men who didn't lose their virginity until they were 25. They say women become mysteriously more attracted to them no matter how uncool or unattractive they might be.

"I regret being so cavalier to what I should have realized was an exploitative situation", he said. I lost my virginity when I was 25, ' ' one woman said. I honestly think what they want is a do-over because women wouldn't bone them until now'.
