Thailand has set a world record yet again, this time for the longest kiss on Valentine's Day - a kiss that lasted for over 58-hours as reported in of dated 15th of February 2013.

The couple was that of 44-year old Ekkachai Tiranarat, a hospital guard, and 33-year old Laksana, a housewife - they had locked their lips for a total of 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds.

By this fantastic act, they had broken the previous Guinness World Record by more than 8-hours.

They had to keep standing all the time, had to take food through straws and, even had to go to the bathroom holding the same posture.

At the end of the 'kissathon', they were richer by 100,000 baht ($3,300) in cash along with two diamond rings.

The event had been organized by 'Ripley's Believe It or Not' and, the organizers have decided not to hold it next year because Thailand has won it for three consecutive years.
