Don't download porn? That would be your safest bet Your best bet is to not download anything that is not from a reputable source, but if you need to, then you really shouldnt worry.. Macs just don't get viruses.. at least at this juncture in time.

As a personal preference porn doesn't interest me. But if I was going to use it I think given (like Murlyn said the source it would be coming from) I'd just use website stuff not try and dl things from p2p clients.

There aren't many (any?) viruses for OS X. Just use Safari, Mozilla, Opera or about anything else than IE and don't download anything suspicious. Pictures or video clips can't contain virus (unless they are not pictures or video clips )
