She lapped with a flat tongue from top to bottom, over and over again lathering it with her saliva.
I would personally say "lapped it with", but it seems we can use the verb as an intransitive. It seems odd though, because we see in the definition itself "something" referring to the direct object.
- To wind around or enfold something. (Your Dictionary)
The same definition has a transitive form, which is weird to me.
- To wrap or wind around (something); encircle. (Your Dictionary)
So can we use it in the intransitive form, or is it an error?
It also seems like the fourth definition is similar to the third, but it doesn't have an intransitive form. Why is that?
We can say:
Those are the models who were lapped in expensive furs.
As well as:
The men lapped the models in expensive furs.
However, we cannot say:
The men lapped in expensive furs as the models undressed themselves.
