Seven amorous but exhausted couples smooched their way to a new world record for the longest continuous kiss in Thailand last Monday. The previous record was 32 hours.

“I am glad we could set a new record,” said Somporn Naksuetrong, general manager of the Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in Pattaya, which hosted the Valentine’s Day event, when they had passed the 32 hour point.

“But at the same time I’m worried for our contestants. They looked really tired. We’ve already prepared medical services for them.”

He said he was particularly concerned about one 51-year-old woman and her 37-year-old husband.

“The wife is weary but not giving up. She is exhausted but she wrote a note to us saying they will be the last couple. I think they will stay until they collapse,” Somporn said.

But it was Ekkachai Tiranarat and his wife Laksana who set the new record for the longest continuous kiss, lasting 46 hours, 24 minutes and nine seconds, to become the last couple locking lips for a prize of about US$3,250 cash and a diamond ring, organizers said.

Fourteen couples joined the contest, kissing their way through the night without stopping even when sipping liquids through straws or going to the toilet with their partner.

They were forbidden from sitting down — except when going to the toilet — or falling asleep. Seven dropped out before reaching the new record.

上週一在泰國,七對又愛又累的情侶,無間斷接吻超過三十二小時,刷新接吻馬拉松世界紀錄。

主辦這場情人節活動的芭達雅杜莎蠟像館經理森朋(Somporn Naksuetrong)表示,「我很高興我們可以創紀錄。」

他說,「不過,我同時為看起來很疲累的參賽者感到擔心,並備有醫護服務待命。」

他說他特別擔心一位五十一歲的婦人與她三十七歲的丈夫。

森朋說,「這位太太雖疲倦卻不放棄。她雖精疲力竭,不過她寫了張字條說他們將會是最後勝出的一對。我想他們將持續到他們倒下。」

主辨單位表示,創下最長接吻新紀錄的是Ekkachai Tiranarat與他的妻子Laksana,共吻了四十六小時二十四分鐘九秒,這也讓他們贏得約三千兩百五十美元的獎金與一只鑽戒。
