(Newser) – Fame doesn’t exempt sons from being embarrassed by their moms. Just ask the Jonas Brothers, who may be a little red-faced at reading what mom Denise told Good Housekeeping about their sex lives. “They are men. They have desires,” she said. “If they make a mistake, I’m not going to hate them. They are tested and tested, like every one of us. I pray for them.”

“They’ve been criticized for proclaiming things they never proclaimed,” Mama Jonas said, defending the purity rings Kevin, 21, Joe, 19, and Nick, 16, all wear. “And what’s the criticism? They don’t want to go out there giving everyone an STD? What's so terrible about that?”
