Male Masturbation/orgasm

Question
Do you have to have an orgasm to ejaculate?  Can you have an orgasm without an ejaculation, or an ejaculation without an orgasm?

Answer
For most males, orgasm and ejaculation happen simultaneously.  It is possible both to have an orgasm without ejaculation or an ejaculation without orgasm.  Males who can have orgasms without ejaculating have the potential to be multi-orgasmic.  Ejaculating without orgasm is not very pleasurable, but most males have experienced it at one time or another.
