As the title says, I want to know the difference.
I always thought that (female) cum and orgasm were the same, but I am having a small debate on if with my girlfriend who says cum is right before you orgasm.
I know an orgasm is the peak of sexual pleasure followed by muscle contractions and/or other experiences. I want to know what cum actually is for a female and how you can tell that you've done it. I know it is white but other than that, I don't know.
What is the difference?

With 'slang' terms like "cum", there isn't necessarily any one answer, and this can be further confused with sexual slang, as sex is often discussed ONLY using slang terms or euphemisms instead of clear and specific language. "Cum" as a noun is most often used to refer to male ejaculate (semen), though it may also be used to refer to female ejaculate expelled during orgasm or vaginal mucus/lubrication secreted during arousal. As a verb, "cum" is usually used interchangeably with "orgasm" for both men and women (and other sex/gender identities), though it may also be used in place of "ejaculate", which, as September pointed out, often occurs with orgasm (for most men and some women, but not necessarily). Anyway, "cum" is not a technical term, so there isn't necessarily one 'correct' definition for it.
