No, the hiv virus is fragile and is inactivated by air and saliva.  Therefore, giving or receiving oral sex is not a risk.  As long as you do not share IV drug needles or have unprotected vaginal or anal sex, you will not need to worry about HIV.

The only ways HIV is transmitted are:
-Unprotected anal/vaginal penetrations.
-Sharing needles to inject drugs.
-Mother to child.

Oral sex exposes you to several other stds though. Check the std forum for more info.

All the best.
