I don't know where she heard it--she says she doesn't remember--but my preschooler asked me what "fuckin'" means just now. I told her it wasn't a nice word and it wasn't for little girls to say, but she still wants to know what it means. I'm rather at a loss. We've never been particularly prudish about body parts, but she doesn't know what sex is, and I don't think she's ready to know.

I would just tell her that some people say it out of anger, like darn or dang (or substitute whatever you say around the house). I would also say that it's a very bad word to use and that people get in big trouble for using it. I don't think I would go into the sexual connotation of the word.
