Karen Tynan, an employment law specialist who counts local wineries among her clients, represents Los Angeles-based porn stars, producers and talent agencies in their bid to make sexually explicit movies without using condoms.
Ms. Tynan is a Sonoma County attorney who flew out of Sonoma County to Las Vegas for the annual porn industry’s convention where she will be on a panel discussing workplace safety issues.
One might think this female attorney and mother of a teenage girl would never be caught working to assist the porn industry who are often accused of being sleazy and demeaning to women but she has no problem reminding people that porn is a legally protected form of expression. She also says that encouraging teenagers to practice safe sex and advising adult performers are two different things.
Ms. Tynan has plenty of support at home and counts people such as District Attorney Jill Ravitch as a friend. She’s a past leader of Sonoma County Women in Law.
Sounds to me like a very interesting woman with a very interesting practice.
