article imageGay men set new record for longest kiss

By Lynn Curwin     Sep 19, 2010 in World
A couple of young men have set a new record for the longest continuous kiss. They kissed for 32 hours and 30 minutes on the campus of The College of New Jersey on August 11-12.
Matty Daley and Bobby Canciello broke the previous record of 32 hours 7 minutes and 14 seconds, which was set in Germany, to raise awareness of equal rights and to raise funds for The Trevor Project – crisis intervention and suicide prevention program for gay and questioning youth.
The Matty & Bobby Kiss website invited people to join the men in to “support the uprising of the GLBTQ community, in an effort of student activism, and in support of equal rights for every individual regardless of sexual orientation or gender.”
This is the first time the record has been held by a homosexual couple.
Bobby and Matty are not partners. Matty prefers to keep the status of personal life private and Bobby is in a relationship with someone who is very supportive of the record-breaking effort.
The men took part in a 48-hour cleansing process before the challenge began, to rid their bodies of as much waste as possible, and had been training for physical stamina.
They went through a six-week approval process so that their record would be recognized by Guinness, and had to follow several rules. The rules included that their lips touched at all times, that they remained awake and standing, that they were not propped up by any aids or people, and that adult diapers/nappies were not worn. They were not allowed to take any breaks.
