firefox and Opera have "clear private data" options.
safari has a "private browsing" option you can start with.

that being said, porn is all good. men like porn. its a scientific fact. as men we respond to visual stimulation.... however if you're needing to look at this stuff whilst at school you may have a problem.

much like an alcohol drinks during the day, while at work, you seem to be violating boundaries of appropriate behavior that may hinder you severely later in life.

are you sure you want to go down this road?
do you want to be the "I need to look at naked amatuers while I'm at school" guy?

if you're bringing this home, i guess it's cool. i still would recommend saving up for a bit and buying your own computer to put porn on.

If you're really paranoid, select Safari->Private browsing. That will force safari to not save any history, cookies, passwords etc.
