Risks from 2 sec oral and genitals touching

So I went and read almost 50 pages of questions and answers here and I found out that oral is a low risk, but I am wondering if a 2 second oral is any risk at all.

My situation:
I went for an erotic massage, and while the lady was massaging me she took my penis (unprotected) in her mouth. I stopped her as soon as I realized what's going on, so it couldn't have lasted for more than 2-3 seconds. Later while I was lying on my back she was on all fours above me, rubbing my chest and stomach and moving back and forth. During this, my penis touched her vagina 2-3 times, and again I stopped her and ended the encounter. It was not rubbing the genitals together, they just touched together.

My question is, do I have any risks from what happened and if yes - what? I am kind of concerned that her vaginal fluids came in touch with my urethra. This happened 7 days ago and so far I have no symptoms. Apologies if I am asking a stupid question, but my mind is in overdrive.

The briefness of the activity certainly cuts down on risk.  I wouldn't be worried nor test for std's unless you develop some type of symptom. It was still 'a risk' but small and I wouldn't look for anything to happen. Chlamydia from the throat after receiving oral sex is really unlikely with a 3 second oral moment and same for hsv.  Touching your penis to her vagina is also negligible risk for skin to skin risks, hsv, syphilis and hpv. Again, no sores? No symptoms?  Don't worry or test.
Thanks a lot for your reply.

Would you say there was any remote risk for HIV? As my urethra might have come in touch with her vaginal fluids when our genitals touched.
hiv?  no.  ZERO risk.  The only risks for HIV are unprotected vaginal or anal sex (with penetration) and sharing IV drug needles.  Air and saliva inactivate the virus.
Thanks again for the reply. I was super worried, but now I feel relieved. I think I will do an STD screening just to be 100% sure I didn't get something and don't have any symptoms.
I just got a rash on my upper thigh:

Is it herpes?
It doesn't look like it. It looks more like infected hair follicles, but if you are concerned, you should let your doctor check them out. No one can ever diagnose from a picture.
Thanks auntiejessi. I just wanted to write an answer to my own question, but you demonstrated how much you know once again. I am really grateful for you good guys here as you helped me calm down and worry a lot less (I still worried as I am a panicker) about my risk contact.
I went and saw a dermatologist, he checked it out and said it is just a few pimples, probably caused by shaving the area above my penis, as the thigh and this area rub together. He popped it and yellow pus came out, in contrast to the clear liquid inside herpes blisters. He also read the situation pretty well, saying that I probably did something which has preoccupied my mind and it makes me think that everything that happens is going in this direction.
I also went and did an STD screening test 10 days after my contact and all came back negative. They did a PCR urine test for the following: Chlamydia trachomatis, Mykoplasma genitalium, Gonokokken,   Mykoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma urealyticum/ parvum, Herpes simplex Virus (Typ 1/2),  Treponema pallidum.

Maybe it was too early to test for some of the stuff, but I did the test mostly for chlamydia and gonorrhea.

Would you say I should get a syphilis test done after 6 weeks or just stop worrying about it?

(sorry for multiple comments, it wouldn't submit it all in one)
You are having a serious over-reaction here. Massive.

You don't need to test for syphilis at 6 weeks. You didn't need to test for any of this for a mouth being on your penis for 2-3 seconds.

I don't know if this is a guilt reaction, an anxiety disorder, or both, or something else, but please, seek help for your anxiety if you can't let this go. I say that with compassion.
Thanks for your answer auntiejessie.

Well I might be overreacting, for sure, but this is my first time to be in a situation like this. When googling and researching online, there is a lot of information that makes a person think that they are at risk(not at this site/forum). Also, HIV risk from genitals touching - it says it is low risk from contact with vaginal fluids coming up the urethra, oral also low risk, but risk nonetheless.

For you it might be clear that there is no risk etc but for someone that doesn't have any knowledge about this, even a distinct remote possibility that a life changing (and threatening) virus might be infecting them can push their minds in overdrive. I am lucky that I found this forum, and honestly the fact you think I am overreacting is reassuring, as crazy as that might sound.

One more time thanks for your replies and for spending time on a rambling anxious idiot. I will definitely not put myself in a situation like this ever again.
Okay, so since this is your first time - here's some info.

Gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, hep B, mycoplasma, trich, NGU - all require penetration of some sort, either oral sex vaginal sex or anal sex. Fluids do transfer these, but brief touching of parts - like a penis to a vagina - won't transfer them because fluids have to get into your urethra. Condoms provide protection against all of these.

Herpes (hsv), HPV and syphilis are transmitted by direct, unclothed skin to skin contact - oral to oral (oral hsv1 only - this is cold sores), oral to genital, genital to genital or genital to anal. For example, you can get herpes from grinding and rubbing, but it takes some friction to transmit, so a brief touch won't do that. Condoms don't provide full protection against these, but do offer significant protection.

For syphilis, you need to have direct contact with a sore present. Herpes doesn't require a sore present. HPV is very contagious, and there are some strains that don't present with symptoms, so you don't have to have symptoms to transmit.

Generally speaking, the longer the exposure, the higher the chances of transmission.

HIV is no longer a fatal disease - it's considered a chronic one. It is well managed and controlled with medication. Obviously, we should all prevent infection when we can, and HIV can be a serious illness, and have serious consequences for people.

I want you to be informed, rather than anxious. I hope this helps. :)
Thanks a lot for the detailed explanation.

Here is what I got out of what you guys wrote so far:
So given that there was no vaginal penetration, only brief 2-3 touches and that receiving oral doesn't transmit HIV, that is no risk.

Theoretically there is some very low chance for chlamydia, gonorrhea, HSV, hpv and syphilis, but very very unlikely given the briefness, and I already tested for a bunch of stuff so should be safe.

Thanks once again for your patience and information.
Yes, your takeaway is perfect.

Take good care. :)
Nice. Will do.

Thanks a lot once more, I wish you all the best as well!

Is it possible to donate or to support the forum somehow?
We don't take donations, but what you can do is help educate others if the situation ever arises, or help combat stigma of STDs by not allowing friends to make jokes about them - things like that. Also, protect yourself and your partners.

That's all we ask. :)
