Techcrunch debunks part of the Silicon Valley sex party accusations. At least one well documented party (a Draper Fisher Jurvetson event) has many people indicating there was no sex or drugs at the party.

So what happened at that party? It sounds like the answer is “at least two instances of shitty behavior which are basically, infuriatingly, pretty typical examples of how the tech industry treats women.” But it also sounds like it was basically a fairly tame, if themed and Burning-Man-ish, event which some culturally conservative people saw and immediately misinterpreted as a sex party.
