Two days after partying and networking at a conference Feb. 3 in Los Angeles, David Castello suddenly fell ill with uncontrollable chills and a 102 degree fever. Part of the conference took place at the Playboy Mansion.
“I went from zero to not a good place in 15 to 20 minutes,” said Castello. “It was like somebody flipped a switch.”
Castello, co-founder of Castello Cities Internet Network, was among the hundreds of people to get sick after the conference.
But could the Playboy Mansion, a place of lurid fantasies, really have such an adverse effect on a person’s physical health? For some, it is the dream of all dreams to hit up a shindig at Hugh Hefner’s famous bachelor pad.
