Yes when a male is receiving oral sex he is at risk from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), although the risk is lowered considerably if protection is used.

  • What STDs does a male receiving oral sex risk catching?
Without intending to put the fear of God into anyone reading this, if fellatio is being performed then the receiver is still at risk of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Genital Herpes, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and Syphilis.

  • Is that all?
As far as there being a definite risk, I believe so yes, although research as to whether Hepatitis B can be transmitted during oral sex is inconclusive so it wouldn't be fair to give a categorical answer one way or the other.

  • Is there anything that can be done to lessen the risks of catching an STD during oral sex?
It wont necessarily guarantee prevention of any STDs but it will certainly reduce the risk of contraction significantly if a condom or dental dam is used during fellatio. If the person performing the act brushes their teeth directly prior to fellatio then gums may bleed increasing the risk, so it is advised not to do so. It will also minimize the risk of the individual performing oral sex if the recipient refrained from ejaculating in their partner's mouth.

Yes it is because you are sucking and receiving  the semen from your partner and you don't know if your partner is safe...
