I'm having a debate with a customer. I have it dating all the way back to Pontius Pilate but he thinks it's more current.

“Fap” is one of many onomatopoeic words often used in manga to depict the specific sound of a character masturbating. The earliest known transcription of the word “fap” online can be found in the Sexy Losers webcomic titled “Video Girl Etchi” (shown below, left), published on April 28th, 1999. The comic parodied a scene from Video Girl Ai, a manga series written and illustrated by Masakazu Katsura and released between 1990 and 1993

Fap is Billions of years old, coined at the first "Big Bang".

Yup, how did you think the big bang happend? it was god fapping and having a orgasm. Now that i think about it even more, it  could have been a giant sneeze or fart..

I was gonna suggest knowyourmeme but Jangler beat me to it. That site will one day be considered a hallowed archive of our culture.

Sadly.

note that the entry states: "The earliest known transcription of the word 'fap' online".  The word itself as a synonym for spanking has clearly been around much longer.

 

While the version we are talking about comes from Japanese pop culture, it has roots in English as a synonym for 'drunk' which are right now.  Could you, perchance, be fap fapping?  :D
