I think it's a twist from the word 'come' as in "to come to orgasm". I think! ;)

I have no idea. The real term is ejaculate. Which comes from the prostate, and pickes up sperm in the testes (assuming you have two).

I first saw the word in cheap pulp erotic novels. To be honest, I thought that the author could not spell ejaculate, and certainly cum uses less ink and is easier to put on the page. It also has a certain gross sound, that these books like. The spelling, I am almost sure, is to distinguise it from come. But I still cannot figure out why it would be a word.

but sex is full of words that make little or no sense. "dick" "cock" "pussy" etc.
