An interesting one this.

BBC News - Male pill: gene discovery may lead to contraceptive

"It may be possible to develop a new male contraceptive pill after researchers in Edinburgh identified a gene critical for the production of healthy sperm.
Experiments in mice found that the gene, Katnal1, was vital for the final stages of making sperm.
The authors of a study in PLos Genetics said a drug which interrupts Katnal1 could be a reversible contraceptive."

I doubt that a birth controll pill for men will EVER come out.....there might be some side effects....we can't have that...we save that just for the women.
