In brief: Yes
While hpv vaccination is best given prior to any possible exposure, ie sex, having sex is not a contraindication, and there is still significant benefit in hpv vaccination.
Start soon!

In brief: Yes
The sooner you get the hpv series the better. The more sexual activity you are involved in, the more likely you are to be exposed to the virus.
If you are vaccinated before you are exposed, then hopefully you will not get the hpv infection and complications.
