Mmm, I feel like a little ham myself!

From Tug of War! by S:

"On Logan's balls, Jake's tongue felt like ham."

Is this a typo? An obscure idiom? I'm at a loss here.

I was initially at a loss a couple lines later with:

"Jake slurped Logan's testicles as if devouring kenepas."

but Google tells me kenepas is a green plum-like tropical fruit. Well allrighty then.

What worries me is how he knew what ham felt like against his balls.

But reading swiftly through a page or two of that, it's riddled with horrid imagery, like someone lifting their arms horizontally into a v shape!!!

I did notice after posting that S's prose seems to get weirder the longer I look at it. The very next line in the story after the ham bit is: "Fuckin' A!" Logan grunted. Uncontrollably, he twisted left, and his pubes bristled like the leaves on the trees outside the panel window. which is less colorful, but similarly opaque.

A couple lines later, we get "Unfucking believable!" Logan heaved, pulling Jake's hair as though it were
a ragged doll.

As if his hair were a ragged doll? Wow.
