Thailand targets 50-hour longest kiss record for Valentine's

Couples in Thailand are currently competing for the longest kiss world record, with the marathon smooch set to end on Valentine's day.

The annual contest, held in Pattaya, sees couples aiming to break the current world record for the longest kiss, which stands at a gob-smacking 50 hours, 25 minutes and one second! Nine couples are competing this year, with the oldest couple, aged 72 and 74 years old, using the contest as a way of celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

Pannajet Yomjinda and his wife Suwanna Yomjinda will compete with the eight other couples to keep their lips locked together for more than two days straight. Officials are on hand to ensure the lovers stick to the rules (and each other), even when using the specially-designed toilets close by! Contestants can drink water during the record attempt by using a straw.



"We have been married for 50 years. We want to see if we can do it," said Mr Yomjinda. His wife was less optimistic, saying they would have had a better chance earlier on in their relationship. " I'm not sure if we'll win because of our age but if I was younger, we would surely win," said Mrs Yomjinda.

The current record holder, Thanakorn Sithiemthong, was competing again this year after setting the record time in the 2012 contest. He was unsure whether he could beat his previous performance, but was keen to give it a shot.

"The secret of our love is to take care of each other," said Mr Sithiemthong. "We love each other the same, but I'm not sure if we can break the old record but we'll do our best for our love."
