I think that would depend greatly on the culture of the commune. There is nothing inherently wrong with exchanging sex for things or favors. I think it’s about social bonding as much as pleasure. It makes sense when you fit sex into your schema of sharing and social cohesiveness.

What come to mind for me is: How much cultural healing would be necessary for me to feel good about that?

With regards to what you said about ability, it’s an oppressive cultural factor that erases the sexuality of folks affected by ableism. We likely would have no need for sex workers in that context if people affected by ableism are allowed to be seen as the humans that they are. Again, cultural factors.
