"thought control" has been an important and integral part of how Japanese society, including its culture, has been trained by its rulers. TV is a big part of that nowadays.

the sentos stopped being mixed in the meiji era because the rulers of Japan wanted to appear civilized, not because of foreign pressure. The onsens were mostly mixed until the 80's when the "onsen boom" began and younger people started visiting them. before that it was mostly old people and they were quite comfortable with mixed bathing. trying to blame the US occupation is off base . 20th century Japanese had learned to be prudish and believe it to be "traditional"
