In an excerpt of her book Brotopia in Vanity Fair, Chang writes about the prevalence of parties where sex and drugs (typically Ecstasy) are the norm. Insiders give her the details, and while they speak anonymously, they don't consider their gatherings scandalous.
"On the contrary, they speak proudly about how they’re overturning traditions and paradigms in their private lives, just as they do in the technology world they rule," writes Chang. A wide range of such parties exist—some drug- and alcohol-free, some not—but they are generally discreet, invitation-only affairs, and the hosts make sure that female guests outnumber the males. Chang says "household" names are involved, including tech entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
