In brief: Probably

It's been demonstrated in non-human primates, but in large epidemiologic studies it's much less risky than other practices in which body fluids are exchanged.
There are anti-HIV substances in saliva and this may be part of the explanation. You can share syphilis, gonorrhea, and herpes doing this stuff. That's enough reason to be careful.

At the 4th International Oral AIDS Conference held in South Africa, the risk of transmission through oral sex was estimated to be approximately 0.
04% per contact. I guess that means you can do it 2,499 times and skip the 2,500th [NOT!]. The best answer is yes, but the chances are much less that from anal (1.4%) or vaginal (.08%) sex (these are rough numbers.But, basically, "yes," so use protection
