i know that sperm comes in all colors and textures, but is it normal to produce a different texture of sperm while engaging in sex as opposed to what you produce during self-masturbation?

Specific activities won't have an effect on the texture of your semen, however, when engaging in partnered sex, chances of lubricant, your partner's fluids, spermicide and the like will alter how your own semen looks. Make sense?

I've noticed that the appearance of semen varies a lot, thicker vs thinner, more opaque vs clearer, not just for different individuals but for one person at different times. From my experience, I'd say that how aroused I am and how long it's been since I last ejaculated have somthing to do with the consistency. It's not really something I've ever given much thought to, though.

Actually, come to think of it, a couple years ago, I put some of my semen on a miscrocope slide (I'd picked up an old microscope at a yardsale for a few bucks) and took a look at 400x magnification. It was a strange but fascinating experience to see all those little sperm wiggling around... (This makes me seem like such a nerd, oh well). It is a neat thing to do though if you have a microscope kicking around and a spare moment.
