1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Loosing your mucus plug is a good sign, but doesn't necessarily mean much other than your pregnancy is progressing normally.
Normal sexual activity is still fine, and safe, and sometimes encouraged in the later stages near term to help bring labor on. It is usually only after your water breaks that you run the risk of infection. Good luck and fortune with the remainder of your pregnancy/new baby.
