Don't : Don't know if she had poor hygiene or if there was a vaginal discharge. I havn't heard of a yeast infection smelling like rotten cheese. If she did have a markedly malodorous vaginal discharge and you elected to put your penis in there anyway, have no idea what type of pathogens you may have exposed yourself to. Just because there is a hole, it doesn't mean you have to poke it. If the woman smelled so bad that you were both overwhelmed and disgusted; this should have raised some big red flags. Or a big red stop sign. If concerned about contracting an std, recommend that you see your doctor.
