How exactly do you define a "sex party"? The SLO punk parties are definitely sexually charged and it's pretty common to see naked people running about (usually from the hot tub) but it's not like they're just orgies or something. Take our New Year's Eve party, one of the best ones recently - we had a house entirely wallpapered with aluminum foil (known as the "Crashed Alien Spaceship") and a bunch of people dressed as their favorite B-movie scifi characters running around, champagne and other forms of alcohol, a dance floor, a big screen TV showing bad science fiction movies, a huge hot tub, and on the stroke of midnight we set off some giant flame cannon/fountain thing. Once the night wound down and dawn came (this was a three-day party, sleeping space provided for out-of-towners like me) we played assorted tabletop games and RPGs throughout the next day, then we all went to see Return of the King. The third day we were supposed to go to the beach, watch the sunrise, spend all day there and have a bonfire at night, but it started raining the second night and didn't stop for a few days so that got cancelled.
This is how the SLO Punks party :-)
