Better sex ed (and romance ed and relationship ed) is a good idea in general, but it's not likely to happen precisely because sexuality is so taboo.

A lot of parents are non-co-operative. Some don't see why kids can't pick all the information up through assimilation. Some don't want their kids educated as early as thirteen (when kids in poor areas tend to start trying sex out), because they think the pupils are too young to deal with the information or liable to try sex too early or even just ask awkward.

Also, it's hard on teachers. As far as I can tell, the majority of pupils get stuck on the idea talking about sex is naughty and don't absorb much because they're too busy giggling. Also, a lot of schools have regular teachers teach it (with or without guidance), which means they're not just really uncomfortable talking to kids about it and worry about accusations of sexual offences against minors in their care.

The internet is helpful, because it makes people more aware of how much variety there is out there, but it mostly does this for younger people who are already sexually aware, so it doesn't really aid in sex ed, except where people are actively directing teens to helpful sites. (Also, schools try to block sex-orientated websites.)

Also, I think kinks are too many and complex for this to help kids protect themselves from this sort of thing. I expect a lot of adults who kept an eye on their kids' channels and knew about these fetishes missed.
