If you want to think that way that is up to you, but Garab Dorje the pith Dzogchen master did not say this, and further, since this is the Dzogchen forum, action mudras are not taught as being "the only way to enter the path" by Dzogchen masters. The base, path, and fruit in Dzogchen does not have to do with having to enter this path by relying on a consort (live action mudra), or waiting to achieve this "entrance" at death, or for that matter, just to cover the bases, joining with a consort in Sambhogakaya as Je Tsongkhappa reportedly did because he didn't take one during his lifetime (for varied reasons). If you want to take a consort then you would learn these practices when they are taught by Khenpos or Lamas, and it is taught in detail, for example not to long ago in Vermont by Drikung Lamas, this was taught in great detail, this is a practice, but in Dzogchen this isn't the point, everything you learned in tantra including taking an action seal is a secondary practice, and does not have to do with the heart of the Dzogchen teachings concerning what is the base, path, and fruit of Dzogchen.

No, Dzogchen path isn't achieved because you are a fortunate one who got a consort.

What "path"... you define Dzogchen path by Tantric practices. There are the three statements of Garab Dorje and he didn't have a fourth statement saying "find an action seal, a living consort, or by not doing that your path won't be able to be called "the absolutely no comparison path"...so getting into your nature, discovering that, then remaining in that without doubt, stabilizing that is what Dzogchen masters teach, and nobody heard a master like CHNNR say you needed a living consort to do that. Nobody heard that this was mandatory for everybody to really enter the path.

No, some worldly beings who are male don't feel that way at all, and some of those guys don't want a woman, some of those guys want a guy friend.
