Hello folks.

Then there was a mouth clamped over his, a mouth which was unmistakably a woman's mouth in spite of its hard spitless lips.

I couldn't find the word "spitless" in the dictionary and other ones too.
Please explain it a little.

    The suffix “-less” can be added to many words to indicate an absence of something. In this case, the lips had no spit (saliva).
