I never have because I'm in a relationship, but do any of you? Is it awkward?

It depends on what you're talking about, but the basic answer is 'some do, most don't', especially if you don't count lube used to help protect against the effects of friction.
Most common things to use in relation to STIs are dental dams / clingfilm for oral sex including rimming, gloves for fingering / fisting, and condoms for shared insertable toys, changing every time they're swapped. (Some lesbian-identified women are also sexual with men, where the condoms can have another purpose.)
Ultimately, it doesn't matter what other people do: it's down to your own personal place on the risk / reward scales. If a big chunk of what you like about giving oral is the taste, you will probably be ok with going 'I think the risk of catching anything is tiny, I won't use a barrier for this', for example, but if you think getting something would be The Worst Thing Ever, then you may go 'I will'.
