Male couple wins  kissing competition

A couple in Thailand have been awarded the Guinness World Record for the longest kiss on Valentine’s Day after locking lips for an exhausting two days.

The kissing marathon kicked off at Thailand’s Pattaya beach town on February 12, with the winning couple finally parting lips a record 50 hours later on Valentine’s Day.

Competitors could not move from their space of one square metre and were only allowed to drink water and food through a straw.

The rules stated that participants were not allowed to use the toilets in the first three hours of the competition and after that, could only go for a bathroom break if accompanied by a referee.

The previous Guinness World Record for the longest kiss was held by Lakkana and Ekkachai Tiranarat, a Thai couple from Bangkok at 46 hours 24 minutes and 9 seconds

The winning couple also get to bring home a diamond ring worth 100,000 baht (£2,125) and hotel gift voucher worth 200,000 baht (£4,250).
