What you're describing sounds perfectly normal for the skin in this area. It's quite common for it to have a sort of "grainy" texture, with tiny little bumps.

As long as you've not had unprotected contact (STI/STD risk), and as long as the bumps aren't red, itchy, swollen, discharging, or irritated, it sounds like you've got nothing to worry about.
