HIV is mainly transmitted by Blood, Semen and Vaginal fluids. The risk of receiving oral sex from HIV positive person (Male/Female) is high if oral mucosa has ulcers. The giver has lesser risk of getting the HIV from a HIV positive person.
Next Steps
if the person had exposure, better go for post exposure prophylaxis after checking his/her HIV status.
