Had no idea there were men walking round talking as if this rather mundane observation was some sort of "pill".

This is excellent, thank you. Just curious - do you think the prospect of physical violence and no guaranteed orgasm also play a role in the gatekeeping?

Maybe this is just me interpreting what this guy meant, but what I think he was implying about this (that women control sex) is that it's often claimed that women have very little power in a patriarchal society, but they in fact have substantial power in some ways. It may be the case that most women (and men) already understand this, but not all writing on the topic of gender power imbalances acknowledges it.
