Ripe tomatoes

< Previous | Next >


Hello, everyone!

In a short story "Mr. Voice" by Jess Walter there is an expression I can't understand.
One of the characters, Mr. Voice playing some kind of roleplaying games with his wife. He pretend to be pirate, pharaoh, Tom Jones and so on. During one of these games he says “Dance those ripe tomatoes over here . . . Ooh, let’s get it on, baby . . . Mm, yeah, Mr. Voice digs his little hippie girl . . .”

What ripe tomatoes might he refer to? Red lips?
