Are you asking about men or women?

In men, orgasm and ejaculation are often related, but separate events. Usually, when men orgasm they do ejaculate right afterwards, but not always. Both orgasm and ejaculation can happen without one another.

In women, not all women ejaculate, and for those that do, it's very typical for that to be an occurence that is infrequent, or simply doiesn't happen every time, or with every kind of stimulus. So, for women, it's most common to orgasm without ejaculation.

A female orgasm is generally the vaginal muscles contracting, involuntarily and rythmically for a few seconds. And of course, it feels good. (I liken it to the way a good massage feels on other muscles, but this is sort of a weird analogy so people may disagree w/ me)
