Possibly: Sitting for that long could have irritated your perineal area, especially if you were wearing clothing that was tight or restrictive. If the soreness and swelling do not start to improve in a day or two, though, consider that there may be other causes - minor trauma from sex, or an infection could also cause discomfort in that area.
