Nick Jonas Says His Purity Ring Shaped His View on Sex

Nick Jonas used to wear a purity ring during his teenage years, and although he’s since removed the ring and lost his virginity, Nick says that the ring did actually teach him a few things about sex. He commented:

“It shaped my view of the importance of sex. My journey with faith evolved and became more about my personal relationship with God. It was about me being comfortable with my decisions. As a 22-year-old man, I’m a man in all ways, and I’m comfortable with that. It’s freeing now to be transparent.”

When asked what he would change about the first time he had sex, Nick says a terrible song came on that didn’t feel appropriate:

“That’s a tough one. I think I would change the song. I don’t want to say what song it was, but it was depressing. My iPod was on shuffle. It was a bad draw.”

He hasn’t had sex to his own music and thinks that would just be “so awkward” but he often wonders how many people have listened to his music while gettin’ it on:

“No. Never. That’s a no-fly zone! It’s so awkward. I’ve never even tried. I do think about how many people have had sex to my music. And how many babies have been made to “Jealous.” It’s got a good tempo for sex. They should be naming their babies Nick or Nicole. I’m joking.”

He doesn’t regret the time he dated Miley Cyrus:

“I was so young. What’s unfortunate is that, as we got older, we ran in different circles. We’ve always had respect and wished the best for each other. I don’t know that I have any regrets. It’s more gratitude for having had a good friend in a time of craziness in my life and in hers.”
