Good lord YES! Whatever you do, do NOT say that!
I was ~7 when I got the big sex talk (complete with an anatomy book) and I understood it perfectly - the mechanics, the process of conception, even the idea of it feeling good and of orgasm. (I was aware of what a flaccid penis looked like and even asked how it could go into a vagina like that, since I was having visions of having to stuff it in there like a pillow in a pillowcase!
) My mom could have done a better job adding details as I got older and had a little more contextual understanding (she also completely neglected the topic of masturbation, which caused me much mental strife when I discovered it on my own at oh... 9?), but I definitely understood. I don't think 10 is too young to understand sex, at all.
Now, all that said: I would try to be quieter. Play music in your room or hers. For me, this is a matter of incorporating someone into my sex life who doesn't want to be there. It's a consensual thing. And, this is coming from someone who will DTD in the family bed with a sleeping LO in there - but, for us, doing it around her when she's awake or cognizant of what is going on is absolutely not
I do not think sex is wrong or dirty. I do think it is intimate and meant to be shared between consenting people, including consenting to overhearing it.
