I don't know what he was expecting would happen. It's not like the Enterprise can orbit these planets forever and they can't come with them. Short-term relationship is all he's gonna have.
She'd become part of the crew, so she and James could carry on their relationship. Picard's Data to Kirk's Rayna, except that there's a love interest as well. Rayna would augment Spock as a scientist/researcher/etc. And then of course, you'd have to have an episode where Rayna sacrifices herself to save others and... that would be that. Kirk is single yet again.

Well, according to some politicians, woman have ways of preventing pregnancy by sheer willpower even now! Especially if it was a legitimate rape!
Is there any reason -- any reason what-so-ever -- that this needed to be inserted into this discussion?

Although in the ST III novelization, it is implied that birth control is a simple matter of will (David and Saavik are talking about it and David says something about "I passed all my exams in bio-control").
The first brings to mind Aeryn Sun from Farscape, the Sebacean women had the biological ability to not conceive and to "pause" (or reject) a pregnancy at it's earliest stages, and then months or years later deliberately continue the child's development at a more advantageous time.

The second sound like the Fremen in the novel Dune. Boys would taught in their teen years how have sex without ejaculating, an adult male who never learned the method would be unable to find a partner or wife, and to a minor degree be considered a danger to the group.
