Books (for parents):
but how’d I get in there in the first place? talking to your young child about sex. by Deborah Roffman. (2002)
A great resource for parents of children under the age of 6 (or teachers of that age range). She provides practical tools for answering questions and puts the concept of learning about sexuality in the context of childhood development.
Books (for sex nerds):
Yes Means Yes. getting explicit about heterosex. by Kath Albury. (2002)
One of the first books that I encountered as a young grad student on the topic of sexual desire and pleasure framed in a positive light. And being from Australia is cool.
