Fourteen couples gathered at a shopping mall in Thailand last week, where they attempted to win a kissing competition organized by Louis Tussaud's Waxworks museum. Ekkachai Tiranarat and his wife, Laksana, outlasted everyone with their PDA.
"They were very exhausted because they did not sleep for two-and-a-half days; they had to stand all the time, so they were very weak," museum manager Somporn Naksuetrong said.
The previous kissing record, according to Guinness World Records, was set by another Thai couple in 2012. That duo lasted 50 hours. The Tiranarats managed to swap spit for over eight hours longer.More on MSN Living: What his sex signals really mean
And this isn't their first rodeo. In 2011, the Tiranarats set a new standard for smooching stamina. That year, they managed to stay embraced for 46 hours—blowing the previous record holders out of the water by over 14 hours.
According to the rules, couples' lips could not part at any time. Drinks had to be consumed through a straw during the kiss. Bathroom breaks were allowed, but lips had to remain locked during these trips, and yes, contest monitors were present to enforce this rule. There was no sitting or sleeping allowed. Last year, one woman fainted half an hour into the contest.
"We want to show that love is meaningful and powerful," Somporn told the Telegraph. "It's not easy to stand there and kiss for that long. They really have to help each other and support each other."
Although the record must still be verified by officials from Guinness, the couple won more than $9,000 in cash and prizes.
But really, having a spouse willing to kiss you for two days straight is a prize in and of itself.
