Are you sure you were playing reverse co-ed (on a women's height net)
and not regular co-ed (which is played on a men's net)?  

Reverse co-ed is not all that popular.  The definitive aspects of
reverse co-ed are that men aren't allowed to attack without using an
hitting the ball with an upward trajectory, and men are not allowed to
participate in a block.  Reverse co-ed is therefore played on a
women's height net.

Even if you were playing regular co-ed rules, your organization seems
to have added a "homer" rule.  Regular USAV mixed beach rules do not
restrict men from blocking female attackers.

The USAV Beach rulebook is here:

See the "Blocking" and "Attack" sections for more details.
