My friends got together last year and are full-on with the pda. (more inside)

I have a pair of wonderful friends who are so in love with each other that they don't see how uncomfortable it makes other people (especially me). They kiss in front of me while I am telling a story (to the point that I can't get through it because they are too busy kissing each other's eyeballs and being cutesy). I had dinner with them last week and she was fully lying in his arms, like they were in bed together. The worst part is that they seem totally unable to focus on me or any topic of interest. He'll stop me while talking and say " Isn't Shmoopsie the most beautiful, intelligent woman in the world"? Worse, he makes comments about my sexual proclivities for some reason, i think to show her that I'm the tramp while she is the perfect, virginal princess.
We're in our mid-late twenties and I don't understand this behavior. I think other friends have told them their behavior is "so cute" and so they think everyone is amused. I am clearly not, and have gone so far as to say "You know, I'll wait" when they were kissing while I was talking.
I've mentioned that i was uncomfortable with the pda and she said they would tone it down, but nothing so far.
Should I mention it again? Tell him? I am friends with them both, and thought they valued my friendship. Especially him, why would he make comments like this about my sex life? Am I crazy and are they just really cute and in love?
I have no sexual history with either of them (I am a woman) and he knows little about my sex life, not that it is his business.
