You are correct that the experience that you had is NOT a risk for the acquisition of HSV 2. I see absolutely no reason to test for HSV 2 because of this contact but since 80% of those infected don’t know, we don’t know that you weren’t infected before this encounter.
However, THIS encounter is not a risk and I hope you were gentle with the feeling of the partner who has HSV 2.
