It happened in Thailand, in conjunction with Valentine's Day and Chap Goh Meh, this week.
This is not French Kissing or The Kiss act.
The contestants are trying to break the previous world record of 32 hours 7 minutes and 14 seconds set in Germany.
The top prize offers USD$3,250 cash and a diamond ring, hmmm pretty cheap haaahhh.
"I am glad we could set a new record," said Somporn Naksuetrong, general manager of the Louis Tussauds Waxworks in the resort of Pattaya, the location where the bizzare event was held.
"But at the same time I'm worried for our contestants. They looked really tired. We've already prepare medical services ready 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.
14 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.
At the moment, they are still kissing!!!
