Does my IMAC need antivirus/spyware program?

Hi! I 'm a new mac user and always had PC's (MICROSOFT !!) before with a blizzard of anti-spy and virus requirements to check and update all the time - like Norton. Do I need to buy a separate program for my MAC to check spyware installation, stealth installation of keystroke "capturers" , viruses etc? What do you experts recommend? The folks in the apple store at the genius bar said they didn't use one.
My system is: imac 2.8 ghz intel machine w / 2gig memory, version 10.5.8 installed and all apple software updates done. I don't download other programs other than adobe and am not a gamer.
Thanks in advance smart folks out there!
