And there is nothing wrong with thinking that way and passing those values and ideas on to your children. I just don't happen to share them and pass on to mine, what I believe and what I think is important.  
We all have different views on sex, love, marriage etc and those are the ones we will pass on to our kids - hopefully we all do it in a positive, healthy manner, but sometimes they just walk in on you doing it in the shower!!

I had the same issue

traveller said "my boy is 7  
i agree that i only want to provide the info hes asking for at the time but this morning, after he knows all the rest, he asks me what does the dad do when making the baby, my answer was provide half the dna and that steered the question to him asking about the work load lol he was relived he didn't have to do hard labour(as in work) lol but i was thinking the next question would be how? then the conversation moved to asking me if any of the baby making equipment goes away when you can't have any more children? he knows that i can't have more kids due to medical complications "

with my 7 year son. So, it talked to the school counsellor and she suggested I tell him that is information that he will learn about when he is a little older. I did that and the interest slowly passed and he forgot about asking. Worked well for me.W ill re-evaluate when he asks again.

Do you think he's likely to approach mom to talk about sex when he's 10? I think he's gonna be getting a whole lot of (mis)information from a whole lot of other sources by that point.  
Don't be embarassed. Open the door to communicate with him about it at least!

Not Embarassed at all

I just didn't know if I really wanted him to have that information. So I asked the guidance counsellor and she recommended that I put him off a little longer if I can. We have a very good relationship, and we talk about body parts and babies whenever he asks. I just don't think he needs to know about penis in vagina at this time. I asked for advice, and I liked her answer and chose to do what's best for my son. Not a big issue. I can just as easily tell him about it if he chooses to push the issue. I certainly have no issue with anyone who chooses to tell their children everything at any age. As long as the conversations are relevant, and appropriate, and the truth, it's all healthy.
