Was there syphilis risk?

I am male and had a sensual massage from a male masseuse last week. There was no anal sex and just brief oral with condoms throughout. However, I did lightly and briefly lick his scrotum and the skin between his scrotum and anus. I did not lick the anus area. Did I put myself at risk for oral syphilis?  What are the rough odds that I may have contracted an infection of any sort?  Thank you very much.

Hi,  Syphilis is transmitted from person to person by direct contact with a syphilitic sore, known as a chancre.  If there was no sore then the risk would be considered non-existant.
