Rfv-senses : to troll for gays partners and to chat up a guy in hopes of getting in him bed. At the very least, these should be merged and made less ambiguous. I think "get into bed" in this context makes to have sexual relations. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:00, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Really? Why? Mglovesfun (talk) 12:12, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
I've tried quite a few searches on Google Books:
  • "camping him"
  • "camping me"
  • "camped him"
  • "camped me"
  • "camping a|the guy"
  • "camping a|the man"

And I have nothing even close to relevant. Looks like a fail to me. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:27, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

rfv-sense on verb sense 4:

To behave in a camp manner.
Don't camp up your performance of Malvolio in Twelfth Night this time.

But that example doesn't support it: the citation is of "camp up" used transitively (which feels like a productive sort of formation from the adjective), not non-phrasal "camp" used intransitively. Is the latter supportable? 4pq1injbok 17:02, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
