Yes: You can not get pregnant from oral sex but you can catch sexually transmitted diseases. You are lesss likely to spread an std through oral sex than through intercourse, but it is still possible. Using a condom will decrease the risk.

Oral Sex: Aside from the risks of infection, I do not know what could be dangerous about this.
