Couples lock lips in Malmö make-out fest
12:30 CEST+02:00
Malmö's Möllevången district was the scene of a make-out manifestation on Saturday as many perfect strangers found one another and helped to spread the enduring message of peace and love.

The "Make-out manifestation" attracted more than 30 amorous couples to Folkets Park in central Malmö at the heart of the annual Möllevången festival on Saturday afternoon.

The snog-hungry festival-goers arrived at the appointed hour of 3pm and divided themselves according to preference with the help of makeshift cardboard signs which read: guy-girl, guy-guy, girl-girl and "does not matter".

While many of those attending this public display of affection were already couples, about half of those partaking had met for the first time, local newspaper Sydsvenskan reports.

"We take part to spread the love. And because it is lovely to make-out," enthusiastic participant Beata Wulff told the newspaper.

The make-out fest drew to a thirsty close some 15-30 minutes later and organizers Sara Westman and Daniel Wilby were very happy with the turn out.

"The most fun thing was that many came and found a make-out partner on the spot," Sara Westman said.

Many of the couples lingered on after the event in order to get to know each other better.
