“It’s not gay unless balls are touching” is one of the Rules of the Internet, in some versions of the copypasta.


The phrase began on 4chan, though the original thread is probably long gone. However, there are many places that reference the phrase’s origin. On the DTTW Table Tennis Forum in early September 2006, someone said the phrase and asked the OP if they were “/b/rothers.”

On November 13, 2006, someone posted a lengthy copypasta of the Rules of the Internet to their blog, directly attributing it to 4chan. In this version, rule 57 out of 88 is “If balls are touching, it is gay.”

The phrase did not appear on Urban Dictionary until January 2007.

In the version of the Rules on the Rules Of The Internet wiki, Rule 57 is “You will never have sex.” There is no reference to balls touching in this version.
