OpenDNS has "Web Content Filtering" (but if it's a private club, why bother?)

.  Only the ppl surfing to "bad" sites will be at risk. As long as the computers are not talking to each other, malware will not be able to spread. On my LAN, the computer that the neighborhood kids use for web surfing cannot talk to this computer and vice versa.

.  Ah. I would think that, unless you knew it was going on, you wouldn't be responsible, but, yeah, why even get on their radar.
.  OpenDNS has blocked several malware sites for me, but I tend be be a pretty safe surfer and haven't really put the system to any kind of test. I'm assuming the sexually-oriented material filters would work well, but I don't mind if a nekkid woman shows up on my screen every now and then so I don't have them turned on.
.
.  You can get enhanced firewall software for some routers, eg, Tomato and dd-wrt, but they can be a hassle to setup and keep up-to-date. YMMV
