The band made up of brothers Joe, Nick, and Kevin were the coolest thing in music if you were tween back in the mid 2000s.

In an interview with Vulture, the 'Burnin' Up' singer chats about the emphasis the media put on the boys virginities, aged 12, 15, and 17 at the time.

But he mentions that he remembers the initial onslaught of questioning from an earlier age, "We couldn’t escape it. It started when I was really young — I must have been 10 or 11."

The brothers made the pretty public decision to abstain from sex before marriage, symbolised with purity rings that they were seen sporting from 2005 onwards.

Concurrently, they were the butt of many jokes and people felt like it was an invitation to openly discuss sexuality with the then teenagers.

Joe Jonas made a duet of a TikTok recently which went viral, with over 200 thousand likes. In the clip, there's a picture of the band at the height of their fame side by side with another clip group of people who go on to ask in unison "are you a virgin?".

On the topic of the relentless media attention surrounding the rings though, Joe told Vulture that he found the pursuit of such private information absolutely terrifying.

"That’s the thing: We didn’t know any better, and we just wanted to make people happy… Like, why do you even care about my 15-year-old brother’s sex life?"

Thankfully, they can laugh about it all now. Last year the brothers had their own Netflix special, a "Jonas Brothers Family Roast" where Joe's wife Sophie Turner even took the mick out of the lads. She called the rings "laughably, toe-curlingly lame".
