ANSWER:

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention the chance of catching HIV from oral sex is very rare.

It was only speculated until recent years whether or not HIV could even be orally transmitted without open wounds for the infection to spread. Like STD counselor said, it’s rare. However, rare doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Oral sex or any sex for that matter with a sex worker is already pretty risky, so you may want to get checked out as a general caution.
