Fap (v., to fap) is internet slang for masturbation. While the initial usage of “fap” was strictly limited to describing male masturbation amongst bros, the term has since become synonymous with act of masturbation as whole, regardless of gender. Nevertheless, a female version of the slang exists as shliking.
“Fap” is one of many onomatopoeic words often used in Manga to depict the specific sound of a character masturbating. While it’s difficult to trace back when and which manga was the first to use it, one of the earliest online transcriptions of the word “fap” can be found in the Sexy Losers webcomic.
On April 28th 1999, “Hard” (the first nickname of the comic’s creator, “Clay”) published the third Sexy Losers strip entitled Video Girl Etchi 1. As mentioned at the end of the work, it is a comic parody of one of the scenes from Video Girl Ai, a manga series by Masakazu Katsura, released between 1990 and 1993.
According to a Tumblr post from July 12th 2011 by Clay himself, he was inspired by a Masahiko Kikuni’s Heartbroken Angels comic strip depicting God masturbating when searching for a sound representing masturbation in his own strip.
In 2001, “fap” appeared again in another webcomic, Ghastly’s Comic.
“Buck Cake” is to Ghastly’s Ghastly Comic what “Fap” is to Sexy Losers.
Buck Cake, here, is a pun on the Japanese word “bukkake,” a sexual fetish.
