Will Matty + Bobby Break Guinness World Record’s Longest Kiss?

In 2009, Germany’s Nikola Matovic and Kristina Reinhart kissed for 32 hours, 7 minutes, 14 seconds. New Jersey college students and self-professed LGBT activists Matty and Bobby are hoping to break that Guinness World Record today with 33 hours of smooching. And no, they aren’t boyfriends. (Update: It’s been rescheduled.)

They’ve been training by standing still and staying awake. And if they don’t manage to break the record, they’re committed to trying again. But what about this boyfriend Bobby has? “Yes, I am in a relationship and my boyfriend supports the cause completely,” Bobby says. “We all know each other, and we’re very close friends.” (As for Matty, he’d “like to keep the status of his personal life his own priority during this excursion.”)

So the only question that remains is: Do they have to be tonguing each other the whole time? Not necessarily, but their lips must stay together.

They’ll be performing (appearing?) today — and, with their goal of 33 hours, tomorrow — at Alumni Grove of The College of New Jersey Campus in Ewing, New Jersey.

The Rules
1. The Kiss must be continuous and the lips must be touching @ all times.
2. If the lips part – the couple is immediately disqualified
3. Contestants must be over the age of consent in the country the event is being held.
4. The couple must be awake @ all times.
5. The contestants must stand during the attempt and cannot be propped together by any aids, such as pillows, cushions or people.
6. No breaks are allowed.
7. Incontinance pads or adult nappies/diapers are not allowed.
8. Couples must not leave the venue during their attempt.

Also worth noting: The pair insist they’ve never kissed before. So this shouldn’t be awkward or anything.

Because a kiss is the loudest thing we can say with our lips, without ever having to say anything at all.

UPDATE: The record-setting kiss has been postponed until September because there’s been so much interest in watching these two make out.

    Would be great to have the longest kiss be two men. But 36 hours with no bathroom break? Wow!

  • ChrisM

    Hope they do it. If that second picture is really them, it should be easy for them both.

  • dbzeag

    Unless they are kissing over a toilet, I don’t know how you can do that.

  • DR

    I’d rather do this with my partner for 33 hours. Just saying.

  • Stephen

    What DR said.

  • Enron

    I wish them all the best, they can tongue each other in between to keep the lips moist.

    Hi guys! This is Matty of Matty & Bobby kiss.

    Due to some very last minute and necessary adjustments, we’re actually moving the event to a weekend in mid-September due to the number of people that want to attend, but a weekend would be better. Same location. We’ll be updating the website shortly.

    And yes… we WILL do it ;)

    @Matty Daley: Good luck!

  • Dan

    It didn’t say they can’t go to the bathroom. It just said they can’t maintain their dignity when they inevitably DO go to relieve themselves. Hopefully they will stand in a swimming pool or something if they are smart.

    Best of luck to you 2 gentle-men.
    Score a win for our team.
    If it’s allowed there are flavored lip glosses that may provide some calories; there’s one that tastes like apple pie I can highly recommend but I cant find it to tell you that brandname.

    Watching any two people kiss is such a joyous occasion!

    Beware of swindlers!

    Be informed that model Enyta Romo is a swindler, and has worked along with Nicole Rollolazo in scamming so many amateur fitness models who travel to Los Angeles. Romo is currently living with Tyler Sarry, a fitness model who recently moved to the area. She loves to invite amatuer fitness models to her place in Los Angeles for ‘fun’ and she steals all their money. She has scammed so much people in Venice Beach and has continued to scam many other victims near Beverly Hills.

    Four friends of mine have been victimized by these two women, and they have stolen over $50,000 and both have disappeared. Please beware of these two fitness models, namely Enyta Romo and Nicole Rollolazo.

    Best of luck, but seriously, who made these rules?

  • HPinel
