In brief: No
There is anecdotal reports of orgasm stimulating pre term contractions, but in general sexual activity (intercourse or masturbation) is harmless in pregnancy.
There are certain conditions where it is limited, such as unexplained bleeding or a placenta previa, but in general it should be fine.
