Explanation:
Le lames el sudor a los huevos/las pelotas (better than "bolas") de un muerto. And if you want to be cultured, say "los testículos", but if you want to be nasty, say "los cojones".

Le chupas el sudor a los huevos de un muerto


Explanation:
In my opinion, "lamer" (to lick) is a bit too refined for balls. No one I know in Spain would say "lamer". I propose "chupar" (to suck) instead; it's much more common, really (the word, that is).
