The Jonas Brothers Wear Purity Rings

The Jonas Brothers Wear Purity Rings

The Jonas Brothers all practice abstinence and wear purity rings to prove it. Here’s a snippet from the very lengthy article on the JoBros featured in Details Magazine:

“On a quiet Friday morning in a dressing room at Madison Square Garden, the Jonas Brothers hold out their hands to show off their purity rings. Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas—the teen-pop trio who stand, at this very moment, on the brink of hugeness—wear the metal bands on their fingers to symbolize, as Joe puts it, ‘promises to ourselves and to God that we’ll stay pure till marriage.’ Joe is 18. His ring is silver and adorned with a cross. ‘It actually ripped apart a little bit, just on the bottom, here, but I didn’t want to get a new one, because this one means so much to me,’ he says. Nick, who is 15, says, ‘I got mine made at Disney World. It’s pretty awesome.’ Kevin, at 20, is the oldest of the three, and while a punk-rock purity ring from Tiffany might represent the ultimate oxymoron, that’s exactly what he’s going for. His silver vow of abstinence is covered with studs. ‘It’s pretty rock and roll,’ Kevin says. ‘It’s getting banged up a little bit because of the guitar.’”

GAY GAY GAY GAY! No straight guys would wear the clothes they wear, and it’s easy to avoid sex with women when all you can think about is naked boys!

I’m so happy you have promised that to god. Thank you. Also, I have promised myself I wouldn’t have sex before marriage and I also wear apurity ring. Love ya.

Okay, so kudos for the whole not-having-sex thing, but they make it sound like everyone who DOES have sex is some kind of immoral demon. I totally think that it’s fine to give young kids some type of “good role model,” but I’m a role model for kids, too. The difference between us is that I don’t discuss my sex life with my students. Honestly, you can be a good role model without making it public that you think sex is “bad.” Like I said, good job with the waiting, but I have to admit–they seem to imply that having sex before marriage makes someone “dirty,” and that offends me.

what ****!!! They’re gonna be married to men so what they’re doing wont be considered “TRUE” sex anyway. Two halves don’t make a whole without a hole.

I LOVE JOE JONAS!!!!!!!

THAT’S TOTALLY AWESOME !! , i should do that too :)

Hola chicos! I’m from Argentina, but i know english…
I think the Jo Bros. wear purity rings because they want to, that’s not BAD! U r not them, so u can do whatever u want, they made a promisse (they can’t brake it) it’s their decicion, that doesn’t means they r GAYS, they r NOT GAYS!

LUV YA!!

NICK J I LUV U♥♥!!

DANY, ARG!♥

I think that u all who dont believe in the purity rings are just jealous. Don’t criticize them for their beliefs.. I am the same age as Joe and we both have the same rings. I think that it is really romantic..

So i think that them having the rings are not just selling money.. it is really true and you all just need to back off them!

i think its pretty sad how people are all blah blah blah about them not having sex.youd think people would be proud of them.i no i am.going out in public and saying that couldnt have been the easiest thing alive but they are good examples.and no matter what any of you say nothing will change them.have you seen them do anything extremly bad?NO..my point..they are amazing guys and if you people werent so freakin stupid you would see that.They live for the lord and follow what he wants and thats all that matters.i just cant wait till they prove you wrong then we will see who is the one laughing..i bet none of them would be saying this kind of stuff to you in the first place.
so stop trying to start crap and get a life.

STAY STRONG BOYS!
your amazing guys.

its pretty bad when a 15 year old said all of this..
YOU IMMATURE PEOPLE!

kids these days are smarter then adults…

oh
it’s so cute
nick is so, I dont know, deeper

I think its really sweet that there saving themselfs for that one certain person i find it really amasing they’ve all gone as long as they have and now that there bigger then before its really amasing to see someone so devoted. I am 18 and i think its been kinda hard to go this long without wondering or anything like that cause sex is everywhere you look these days but i’m really proud of them for holding it out and when it does happen its gonna be alot more meaningful then just sleeping with someone and ending up regretting it. I’m really proud they’ve held out. and yes i myself wear a purity ring it was personally made to match Kevins

los amoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
son lo masss
espero que vengan a la argentinaaaaa
y voy a estar en 1ra filaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
chauuuuuuuuuuuu
nik y joe son lo massssssssssssssssssss

weell, what can i saay.. they’re sooooooo cuuute *-*

how do you practice absitence?
anyways,
i think it’s hot that they wear purity rings. they’re changing the world.

didnt read them all, but 16 17 and 26 are right..wtf purity ring in this day and age? bullshit.

and who the **** wants to have sex with a whatever-age-he-gets-married virgin?

isn’t saying “oh my God” a little bit contradictory of the purpose?

I think the Jonas Brothers are very smart and mature. I strongly believe that they will follow through with their promise. I am so glad to see them promote being abstinent and not promoting sexuality like many others stars on tv.I am 14 and I have also made a promise to God and myself that I will stay pure until marrige and I WILL keep that promise. The society today is filling peoples heads with nonsense and saying its alright to have sex before marrige but its not, thats why many peoples marriges have fallen apart. People need to really think of the consiquences of their actions.

I LOVE THE JONAS BROTHERS!!! <33

PURENESS,

Their Christians durr. Being part of that religion, is showing that their keeping a promise to not have sex untill marriage. Its like forgeing off Those who craze over sex. They wear their rings to prove they’ll keep their promise, and stay pure untill they find the right one to share their entire life with. so Boo on you PURENESS and, those who thought the same as her/him.

fakes,

haha Apparently every disney star is fake. People had thought from hilary to miley, and now the jonas brothers. Obvious miley is a fake though. so Boo on you and those who thought the same as you.

Oh and to people who will reply to my comment then HAHA talk as much as you want! I will never reply! hahaha :D I have better things to do than to sit here and talk to losers with no life.

sota sota kuchi ni hama sigshi no kawaki ekekii!

OMG I LOVE NICK JONAS HE IS HOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KEEP ON ROCKIN’ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wow im really sure that a 20 year old pop star guy has never had sex. that ring is a frickin publicity stunt. the other 2 have probably had sex also

I have a purity ring too. I am very proud of it and so is God! Staying pure until you are married is a wounderful thing. :)

i don’t understand why people wear them?
i flimsy piece of silver is not going to stop you from having sex, i love the jonas brothers like seriously love them but i do agree with one of the posters that they are using the hole purity thing as a publicity stunt to gain popularity among not only misguided youth but the parents who dont want their kids listening to that “nasty rock music”.

sorry about the no fullstops, i got carried away.
LOVE THE JBS

againstmost @ 03/30/2008 at 10:06 am

ok i was going to leave this out, but after reading some other posts i couldnt help myself.

i think it is totally fine that the jb’s are chosing to remain “pure”, but all of you people out there who are saying that if you have sex out of wedlock you are going to have bad marriages and your going to get diseases.
what is wrong with you? people IN marriages that have been pure up until the marriage have still have divorces, still get STI’s and ultimately get depressed because their religion forbids them to leave their spouses.

so yeah i just had to say that, i don’t expect anyone to agree or even read this but if someone does hopefully the message gets through that is totally fine to have sex before marriage and its fine to believe in abstinence.
