Do females have orgasm?
Orgasm is the third stage of sexual cycle as described by Masters and Johnson. It is the stage at which the sexual pleasure is at its peak. It can be achieved either by penetrative sex or by manual stimulation. It is possible for a woman to have multiple orgasms. The female orgasm is equated with the sense of extreme satisfaction with sex and is followed by relaxation phase. In women, orgasm may be accompanied with secretion from the vagina.

I am 18, she is 17. We want to have sex. What is to be done?
Patience pays in the long run. You may be charged for serious offence like rape. Wait till you both are at least 18. Masturbation is a healthy way to relieve your sexual energy. Mutual masturbation may be tried. Remember to avoid getting your erect penis near her vagina.

In the heat of the moment, silly decisions may be made. If you are thinking about penetrative sex, use some form of contraceptive to avoid the danger of unwanted pregnancy. The condom may be best suited as it reduces the chances of STD. Talk with your doctor for details about safe sex.

Does occurrence of nightfall prove that sperm count is not zero?
Nightfall is a pointer towards normally functioning male genital system. During sleep stages, the penis does become erect. This may be followed by ejaculation in few cases. The male ejaculate contains not only sperms, but also prostatic secretions, dead cell, enzymes etc. Thus theoretically, there is a possibility that the ejaculate may have no sperms. There is no relation between frequency and sperm count.
