I inserted my finger inside a prostitutes vagina for 2 seconds.It did not go deep, maybe 2 centimetres, and I came to a barrier at this point. I did not notice any cuts on my finger before that and don't remember cutting myself.What is my risk? Has there ever been a reported case of contracting it from this?
