World’s longest kiss lasted over 58 hours

In 2013, a Thai couple broke the Guinness World Record for the Longest Continuous Kiss, which lasted nearly-two-and-a half days.

Ekkachai Tiranarat and Laksana Tiranarat, took the world’s longest kiss title with a record time of 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds while other couples around them fainted from exhaustion at a Valentine’s Day event.

Organised by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Pattaya, the two-day-long kissing competition in Pattaya, Thailand that ended on the eve of Valentine’s Day (February 12-14), smashed the previous record for the longest kiss by more than eight hours.

Kiss me all over the place

The rules of the competition required all the nine couples, including a married pair in their 70s, to stay on their feet throughout and keep their lips pressed together in order to not break the smooch. This meant that they slurped food and liquid through a straw and even went to the toilet while kissing.

“They were very exhausted because they did not sleep for two-and-a-half days, they had to stand all the time so they were very weak,” Sompron Naksuetrong, vice president of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, told AFP.

Breath-taking

A same-sex (male) couple that clinched the previous year’s longest kiss came within two minutes of breaking the new record set by Ekkachai and Laksana but eventually collapsed before the couple gave in.

Besides a long-standing Guinness World Record, the pair also won a cash prize of 100,000 baht (equivalent to $3,300 at the time) alongside two diamond rings.
