    What would you say about a guy who is past 40, very successful, deeply religious, yet remains unmarried and doesn't even date?

    I know, I know, I could be jumping to conclusions, but it is at least a possibility that Perry himself is gay and deeply closeted.  "Temptation" is very possibly a subconscious message to himself to keep the chastity belt on.

    Before anybody jumps on me, you should know that it took me a long time to leave the closet.  I could easily be wrong, but I can recognize the simultaneous desire for and revulsion with sex that this film seems to express from first hand experience.

      Perry's sexual orientation has been a subject of all kinds of speculation for years.  Aaron McGruder devoted an entire episode of The Boondocks to a closeted film director who's obviously a stand-in for Tyler Perry.

      If Perry is a closet case, then that makes this even worse.  Of course, closet cases are often the most homophobic of all people, since they feel they have something to prove.  See, Craig, Larry, Bauman, Robert, etc.

      sexually molested as a child, by members of both sexes, so he could be carrying around all kinds of unresolved emotional baggage.
