Are public mass makeout sessions here to stay? Approximately 50 couples who didn’t get the memo about Valentine’s Day being over participated in a marathon makeout competition on Saturday the 18th, in the Anhui capital of Hefei. Some ladies even fainted due to the stress of extended lip-locking and having to hold acrobatic kissing positions.
The winning couple lasted for 2 hours and 43 minutes, and took home a 1 carat diamond ring valued at 50,000RMB.
We at Shanghaiist fully support the evil capitalist trend of make out marketing promotions that seem to be happening all over the place, since the stakes are obviously being raised with each competition.
Formerly shy and traditional couples kissing in a mortified fashion for housing discounts are now giving way to couples willing to make out for little more than a free meal.
At this rate of exhibitionistic fervor, we might even see daggering arrive in China before too long.
