Thai Kissing

What’s the longest you’ve ever held a kiss? Not an amorous afternoon of kissing a la France nor any sort of torturous hickey-giving, but a model lip-on-lip face-to-face kiss–what’s the longest you’ve ever held one of those?

I’m guessing your answer is somewhere under 46 hours, 24 minutes and 9 seconds; however that would be the response of at least two people in this system: Laksana Tiranarat and her main man/husband Ekkacha.

Along with 13 other couples, the Tiranarats took part in a “Kissathon” competition in Pattaya, Thailand yesterday to raise awareness for “the power of love” and for a chance at a handsom cash reward.

According to the Beeb, “Couples were allowed to eat, drink and use the ‘lavatory,’ provided they did not break their embrace.” Couples who couldn’t kiss sleeping and sitting goodbye were eventually dealt the kiss of death.
