Earliest sex manual

    Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra is believed to be the oldest sex manual in existence. Generally considered the standard work on love in Sanskrit literature, the book is thought to have been written around 300 A.D, or the "Classical Age" of India.
The book is best known to Westerners as an instruction manual for acrobatic sex because most translations use only a portion of one of the 35 chapters, the famous index of sexual positions.
In Sir Richard Burton's classic translation of 1883, other chapters have more innocuous headings such as: Of Creating Confidence In The Girl, On The Arts And Sciences To Be Studied, The Life Of A Citizen and About The Business Of A Go-Between.
 

Longest Engagement

    Octavio Guillen and Adriana Martinez from Mexico finally got married in June 1969, after a 67-year engagement. Both were 82 years old when they wed.
 

Longest Kiss

    Karmit Tzubera and Dror Orpaz kissed for 30 hours 45 minutes, on April 5, 1999, to win a kissing contest held at Rabin Square, Tel-Aviv, Israel. They remained standing and went without rest breaks. They were later treated for exhaustion. For their efforts, the couple won a trip around the world and US $2,500 in cash.
 

Longest Marriage

    Cousins Sir Temulji Bhicaji Nariman and Lady Nariman from India were married when they were both five years old in 1853. Their marriage lasted 86 years, until Sir Temulji's death aged 91 years, 11 months in 1940.
 

Most Kissing Couples

    The greatest number of couples to have kissed in the same place at the same time was 1,420, at the University of Maine in Orono, Maine, US, on Feb 14, 1996.
 

Oldest Bride

    At the age of 102, Minnie Munro became the world's oldest known bride when she married Dudley Reid in Point Clare, Australia, on May 31, 1991. The groom was 83.
 

Oldest Divorced Couple

    The highest combined age of a divorcing couple is 188, by Ida Stern (91) and her husband Simon (97) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US, in Feb 1984.
 

Oldest Groom

    Harry Stevens was 103 years old when he married 84-year-old Thelma Lucas at the Caravilla Retirement Home, Wisconsin, US, on Dec 3, 1984.
 

Oldest surviving love poems

    Written in a clay tablet from the times of the Sumerians, who were the inventors of writing, around 3500 B.C. It was unromantically named Istanbul #2461 by the archaeologists who unearthed it.
 

Oldest woman to become a sex symbol

    Mae West has been portrayed as one of the very few stars who was "self-made and self-sustaining," owing her success to herself alone, not to a director, scriptwriter, make-up artist, or photographer. What is perhaps most remarkable about her is that she first arrived at Hollywood when she was forty years of age - "grotesquely late to begin a film career".
 

Youngest Married Couple

    In 1986, it was reported that an 11-month-old boy had been married to three-month-old girl at Aminpur, Bangladesh. The marriage had been arranged in order to end a 20-year-old feud between two families.
