All the Pretty Horses

Why doesn’t John Grady sell Blevins to the Mexican men on pg.76?

My English teacher told me that this passage of the talk Grady between Blevins after Grady rejects the offer with the Mexican men is really important. Why is that so?. Can you please answer my question, this is really important.

 Blevins looses his clothes, gun, and horse. Some Mexican wax peddlars assume that Blevins is Grady's sex slave. Grady won't sell him because Blevins is not a sex slave and Grady has no interest doing that to the boy. 

Is that it? is there no greater emotional meaning? 

It wasn't in Grady's nature to sell a boy for a sex slave. That's my take on it. 

Ok thank you!
