have there been any studies that determine how long of exposure one would need to be infected with hiv. for example, if a man inserted his penis into a woman's mouth, and assuming the worse case scenario - if there was blood in the mouth - how long of exposure time would be necessary? some say a 10-20 second exposure would be very low risk. if no data has been conducted on exposure time, could you speculate?

No data, and will not speculate.
