More Information

  Regarding definition #1 – burn:
Based on the canon examples, the verb meQ can apparently be used in both a transitive ("burn something") and intransivite way ("something is on fire").

  Regarding definition #2 – climax (sexual):
The regular verb is ghuch, but it's not heard as frequently as a couple of slang expressions: meQ (literally, "burn") and HutmaH chav (literally, "achieve 90"). Maltz never heard anyone say 'ebraH chav, mixing the standard word together with the slang.
