SEATTLE — Christmas is days away, but women got a couple of early presents — one from local medical researchers and the other from the highest court in the land.

I would say, “You shouldn’t have,” but here’s my truth: “What took you so long?”

The first gift is a contraceptive gel for men being tested by the University of Washington. When applied daily on the upper arms or shoulders, it can effectively reduce sperm production within eight to 16 weeks — taking some of the birth-control burden off women’s shoulders in the process.
