A: I can eat two apples in 1 minute.
B: That's still nothing. I can kiss my girlfriend in 10 minutes without stops.

- Did I use the right clause here "I can........without stops"?

Thanks a lot!

    Also "for ten minutes" to express duration of time:

    "I can kiss my girlfriend for 10 minutes without stopping."
    (In is correct for time within which: ".... two apples in 1 minute." Or, better "...two apples in one minute.")

    It's not unusual to hear "non-stop" in this sort of context, either:

    "I can kiss my girlfriend for ten minutes non-stop" or "I can kiss my girlfriend non-stop for ten minutes."
