    you'll assume anyway so i'll make this easy, I checked out a streaming adult site on our family iMac, heres the problem my brother knows his way around OS X better than me and he'll definitely find the url/tags/outrageous titles.etc in time if os X is setup like windows where it saves temp files & internet files on the hd. What extreme measures I need to take to assure i'm in the clear from ridicule? (not really, but it will be awkward when he confronts me)

    If your using the latest version of Safari and Flash Player, then yes it will clear mostly everything. Although sometimes it leave empty local storage and flash storage folders (with site names).

    There could also be traces of the sites you visited in log files, pubsub (RSS) agent cache and the safari history cache folder.

    But I digress. Reset Safari twice, Quit Safari then delete "~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia" & ~/Library/Safari/LocalStorage/ and you should be fine.
