There are low risks of acquiring STDs through oral sex, yes. The main ones I worry about are hepatitis B and A. ... Herpes less likely. But it wouldn't be a bad idea to get partners tested, if possible. The dental dam is like a big piece of thicker plastic wrap, but regular plastic wrap is also a decent barrier in a pinch. I know, it all sounds pretty odd, but it is safer.
