In brief: Risk for HPV
The risk for contracting hpv infection during oral sex is high if your partner is known to be hpv +.
There is a strong relationship between hpv infection with increased risk of developing certain cancer including oropharyngeal cancer and cervical cancer over period of time. Thus, a safe sex habit, hpv vaccination, papsmear screening are recommended and f/u with your doctor.

In brief: HPV infection
One does not contact oral cancer through oral sex.
Hpv infection may occur due to oral sex and that infection may lead to cancer, later on.
