Why don't you just install a filter and block all porn sites?
If you only want to block several known sites, then simply launch your Notepad and open this file:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

After that, append the following text on the bottom (of course you need to replace these urls with the sites you wish to block):
127.0.0.1 www.example1.com
127.0.0.1 www.example2.com
127.0.0.1 www.example3.com

Save this file and restart your browser, then try to access those sites, you'll see the result.

But if you want to block those unknown porno sites, you'll need to download a filter software to do so, just like what Oni_Kami said.

You can bypass a web filter with a VPN or proxy.
