look up any word, like dog in the bathtub:
An academic debate wherein the parties in question make circular arguments and often disregard the other points made in favour of restating their own perspectives over and over and over again. The "fap" indicates both the repetition and the self-pleasure experienced by mouth fappers.
"That conference panel was just a series of mouth fappers fap, fap, fapping"
