[Meaning they] acting as prostitutes.

Notes:
Same or similar entry in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu155 Theodoridis. The headword, which must be quoted from somewhere, is masculine nominative plural of this present participle.
The verb μαχλάω (a variant of μαχλεύομαι ) is first attested as a present participle -- but in other cases -- in Clement of Alexandria, e.g. Paedagogus 3.3.21: "fathers often unwittingly have sex with a child acting as a prostitute or daughters acting wantonly, unaware of the children left as foundlings; and the power of this evil commingling reveals those who have been born that way, when they are men".
