Wank (earlier spelled 'whank') is probably derived from the same source 'whang' as a dialect word first meaning hit, beat or slap. Wank may be simply a variant pronunciation, or a development of the earlier word influenced by 'whack' and 'yank'. Since the 1960s the word has been used of and by women as well as men.
"I've been wanking off ever since that wanker stole my girlfriend!!!"
