Ah, the Jonas Brothers: three of the most wholesome teen heartthrobs ever given to us by the Disney Channel. Hanson 2.0. Skip forward 10 years and things have changed quite a bit. Nick Jonas is now a gay icon, Kevin is married with kids and Joe — well, Joe is discussing his sex life in a Reddit AMA.
Since the Jo Bro's split in 2013, Joe has worked as a songwriter for numerous artists, and now fronts a new band called DNCE. To promote DNCE's upcoming record, Joe logged on and took part in a Q&A, where fans/Redditors could ask him anything. Joe answered questions about his awkward Camp Rock days, the Lonely Kevin meme and Nick's nipples. The juiciest goss arrived when one plucky fan quizzed Joe on how he lost his virginity, and the purity rings were well and truly put to one side for this one.
TL;DR? Well turns out Joe lost his virginity to a girl 'named Ashley'. After a quick Google search/pre-existing comprehensive knowledge of Jonas ex-girlfriends, we can assume that the girl in question was Twilight actress and total babe Ashley Greene.
The couple were an item for almost a year, and Joe regularly comments that she was his first serious relationship. He then tells Redditors that he 'demolished' his roommate's bedroom looking for condoms:
It's quite the great story because I didn't have any condoms, so I went to our drummer Jack's room, who was my roommate at the time, and I demolished his room looking for them. Found them underneath his underwear drawer. When he came home, he thought somebody broke into his room because his whole room was demolished because I was in dire need. Needed to happen then and now. Safety first, kids.

Just hours after Joe shared this intimate detail of his relationship with Greene, the actress posted something on Instagram which may or may not be a thinly veiled dig at the pop star.
Hm, looks like Joe may have stepped over a line. While it's always exciting to peek behind the curtain of celeb-land, it's also important to protect people's privacy, even if it was seven years ago.
However, this isn't the first time Joe has talked openly about losing his virginity. In a Vulture confessional from 2013, Joe said:
We decided to take the rings off a few years ago. I lost my virginity when I was 20. I did other stuff before then, but I was sexually active at 20. I’m glad I waited for the right person, because you look back and you go, “That girl was batshit crazy. I’m glad I didn’t go there.”
Batshit crazy, eh? Joe had many, many exes before Ashley came along, so let's take a quick look back down memory lane and see which 'batshit crazy' exes he might be talking about.
AJ Michalka (singer, Aly & AJ)
Waaay back when, Aly & AJ were ruling the charts with 'Potential Break-Up Song' and the Jonas Brothers' career was taking off. The pair dated when they were around 15, and AJ even revealed to Buzzfeed that Joe was her first kiss. Aw.
AJ: They opened for us when we were all like, 15, and so we started dating and we were together for a year. That was my first kiss!
Taylor Swift (singer)
We all know the story: according to Taylor, Joe broke off their relationship over the phone in a call that lasted only 27 seconds. Joe was then the first of several suitors to be on the receiving end of one of Taylor's revenge anthems.
Camilla Belle (actress, When a Stranger Calls)
Shortly after Joylor broke up, Joe and Camilla started dating and were together for about a year. It has been reported that the Jonas Brothers' hit single 'Lovebug' was written about Belle. Seven years after that relationship ended, Belle went after Taylor over the subject matter of one of her songs — 'Better Than Revenge' — which she believes was about her relationship with Joe.
Brenda Song (actress, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody)
Joe's Vultue magazine confessional also shared details about a fellow Disney star who he used to hook up with in his car, which has all but been confirmed was Suite Life actress Brenda Song.
“I used to sneak out and hook up with this one girl in her car ... The girl was also in the business, and we thought we were screwed because we were both working with Disney. It would have been the worst thing we could think of happening to us. But nothing ever came out!”
Demi Lovato (singer)
Demi once described Joe as her 'little brother' after they both reached peak fame with the release of Camp Rock in 2008. The pair dated for one whole month in 2010, and Joe has since shared that he stayed with her to help her cope with her developing drug problems and depression:
"One relationship that meant a lot to fans was the one I had with Demi Lovato, who I've known for years. We had been friends forever, we were both Disney kids - we eventually dated for a month. [...] I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn't happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help."
As you can see, Joe Jonas has had (and continues to enjoy) a varied and colorful dating life. While we will always speculate which crazy bitch he's referring to (let's be honest, we all have an idea), we all now know the ins and outs of his first time, but was that a cool thing to do?
