article imageThai ‘Kissathon’ couple set 46 hour record for longest smooch

By William Charles Baker     Feb 20, 2011 in World
Pattaya - A Thai couple wins a Valentine Day “kissathon” by staying lip locked for 46 hours, 24 minutes and 9 seconds. The elapsed time is being confirmed by Guinness World Records but exceeds the previous record of over 32 hours set by a couple in Germany.
The TimesofIndia reports: “A Bangkok couple, Ekkachai and Laksana Tiranarat, emerged as the winner, and they were awarded a diamond ring worth 50,000 Thai Baht (1,606 dollars), and a cash prize of 100,000 Baht (3,213 dollars).”
There were strict rules for the contest in that there could be no time when the kiss is interrupted. Drinking had to be done using straws with the lips still together. Bathroom breaks did not allow for any interruption and were accompanied by monitors to ensure the rules were maintained.
Perhaps the harshest rule of all was no sitting or sleeping. In addition there were rules to ensure that contestants met a certain criteria to enter the contest.
The BBC reports: “The couple began smooching at 0600 local time on Sunday, and were announced the winners just before dawn on Tuesday. Contestants had to be either married or a serious couple, with a marriage certificate or letter from both parents required as proof.”
It was reported that a woman passed out only a half hour into the competition.
