Penis rubbed against vagina

What is my risk for transmission if bf has hsv2. He's on antivirals and hasn't had an outbreak in 3 years. He rubbed his penis without a condom on my vagina. There was no penetration at all.

If this was just a slight touching then I would not think it is that then Iwould not be a big risk but if you were humping each other then there is a bit more concern but I think your risk woud be low..
