Can you get STD's from a dog?

Okay, really weird question. Hear me out. I went down to let the dogs in a a few weeks ago, and I was in my nightclothes. We have a gate to the kitchen and I stepped over it, rather than opening it. Because it was dark I didn't see my dogs were already inside. And one of them sleeps by the gate. As I'm stepping over, she sticks her nose in my private parts and a licks a few times.

I, naturally, was rather freaked out, and went to have a shower straight away, but I am a little concerned.... I have hypochondriac tendencies... and this is just too weird to explain to a doctor...
