Risky: There is always a risk. It doesn't sound like the risk is great, nevertheless it exists. Keep in mind that, unlike women, from the cradle to the grave, males remain fertile (continuously produce sperm). You might want to consider Plan B contraception (assuming you're not ready for pregnancy).
