They're *all* social networking parties. In your teens and college, the goal is to get laid. 

In your late 20s and early 30s, the idea is really to have a good time - but you're also trying to meet new people, to have more good times, and because honestly - there may be opportunities in the people you meet. 

In your late 40s and late 50s, you do it because the clock is ticking - and to keep your circle of friends from dwindling in case you find you need opportunities. 

A party is... by definition, social networking. Connecting and exchanging with multiple nodes that are all interconnected. In this case, people.

That sort of party sounds horrible.

Also, I don't remember many of those being organized. MOst people used conferences for that sort of purpose.

Ours were mostly to get drunk and laid.  Not a lot of business expansion going on

Don't think "social networking" in terms of what that phrase means on the Internet. In this context, it means a bunch of people going to a party to "network" -- as in, mix and mingle, make new business contacts, etc. Sort of like LinkedIn but in person.

Getting laid is business negotiations.

That sounds awful. We have parties to spend time with our favorite people, our family and friends. Maybe we're just boring people. Our bedroom encounters are reliably 100% during times when we are *not* having a party.

I don't know which sort of parties are you guys having.

When youngsters want to get laid they just get drunk on the streets and end up boinking in the light of some lamp post. Formal parties seem to be built for something else.
