Thai couples take aim at kissing record

Published By United Press International
BANGKOK, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Nine couples in Thailand had their lips locked Wednesday in an attempt to break the world record for longest continuous kiss.

The couples participating in the "World's Longest Continuous Kiss" competition, which began Tuesday, were attempting to break the record set last year by a Thai couple who kept their mouths pressed together for 50 hours, 25 minutes and 1 second, CNN reported Wednesday.

The winning couple will receive a cash prize and a diamond ring in addition to the record recognition if they manage to beat last year's winning time.
