How Do You Handle "Mature" Comments?

I could really use some advice. This is my second year in fourth grade. Last year's group of students were, honestly, a very good group of kids. Sure, we had our bumps but nothing I ever really lost sleep about. However, this year it is COMPLETELY different. I can deal with mean kids and can do what I can to prevent bullying. However, what is leaving me dumbfounded this year are the number of inappropriate and sexual comments. How do you handle these? The students making these comments are smart; none of the comments are made when I can hear them. However, my other students are reporting these to me and I'm not sure how to handle the situation to make these comments stop. I feel like I'm already having to be a tyrant because of the amount of misbehavior in my classroom. Out of my 26 students, there are four that for now - I have eating lunch in my classroom and staying in close proximity to me at recess for fear of continued comments being made about condoms and sex. Help!
