Oh come on - the comm's definition of Gen is "established canon pairings only, and only if not the focus of the story". Having read the fic it definitely sticks to that rule. The sexual hook-ups John has are not "pairings" in terms of ships, they're what he does to survive.
If you want a new rule that Gen only means "no sex at all please because I hate reading about sex, in fact I don't want to think about my favorite characters ever having sex at all" then that's your issue. Maybe it's the comm's issue, too, but at present that's not how the comm defines Gen.
There's a difference between "Gen" and a "G rating". Not the same things.

This comm was supposed to be about the Gen genre, not about ratings or pairings. As stated by varda below, the definition for Gen on Fanlore is: 'A fanwork that contains no romantic or sexual content, either het (heterosexual) or slash (homosexual).' The comm description needs to be tightened up, or else this comm is no longer Gen.

Also, I would have thought someone reading the comm definition would have realised that non-canon non-relationships are also not in the spirit of the comm - but clearly as this fandom contracts and genners become even smaller a minority, we need to be explicit in the rules to avoid this sort of thing.

Would you put a het story into a slash comm and quibble that the het is not a relationship but someone's job, and not expect the slash community to disagree?

If the story was about, say, John Sheppard as a male escort and depicted him having sex with his female clients all the while still going home to his male lover, yes, I probably would.

As someone who runs a slash comm, I would allow that, as long as the act of fucking those ladies weren't the focus and it was clear from the header that the story contained het.
