Two female complainants alleged that Blake Wentworth had made sexual comments and innuendos and physical contact that was unwelcome and made them feel uncomfortable. They alleged that he made inappropriate statements, including about the sexual practice of fisting and taking drugs at the Burning Man event. One complainant also alleged that Wentworth insinuated he wanted to begin a romantic relationship with her, despite the fact that she firmly stated she did not wish to do so. Wentworth denied any "quid pro quo" type of conversation and that he touched the complainant's hand.
