In brief: Yes, definately

Many sexually transmitted diseases can just as easily be contracted through oral sex as with full penetration sex.
Chlamydia, gonorrhea are two bacterial stis that can infect the performer's throat if the recipiant is infected. Both herpes and syphilis can also be transmitted if an open sore is present.Transmission of HIV through oral sex is also possible if a sore or cut is present.

In brief: Yes

Although saliva is somewhat protective, it is by no means perfect protection.
Oral sex can transmit stds. It is probably more likely to affect someone performing oral sex on a male because of the large volume of material that ends up in the mouth, but oral sex with women can also transmit diseases too.
