From the Online Etymology Dictionary:
Jack off (v.) “masturbate” is attested from 1916, probably from jack (n.) in the old slang sense of ”(erect) penis.”
The same source gives us a very different etymology for “ejaculate”:
ejaculate (v.) 1570s, “emit semen,” from Latin eiaculatus, past participle of eiaculari “to throw out, shoot out,” from ex “out” (see ex-) + iaculari “to throw, hurl, cast, dart,” from iaculum “javelin, dart,” from iacere “to throw” (from PIE root *ye- “to throw, impel”).
Although probably a mere misspelling in many cases, the quite different etymologies along with the identical pronunciations and obvious meaning connection suggest that this is an eggcorn for some—and a new one to the Eggcorn Forum:
girl sex,female ejackulation,sexy plus lingerie

I so desire to masturbate & ejackulate can I do this without causing more problems to already swollen scrotum ?
I cannot ever ejackulate during sex.
