The Jonas Brothers may be virgins, but that doesn't mean they don't look at women, their mom admits in the July issue of Good Housekeeping.
"They are men. They have desires. They have testosterone," Denise says of Kevin, 21, Joe, 19 and Nick, 16. "If they make a mistake, I'm not going to hate them. I don't think they're above or beyond being seduced.
"They have been hurt in relationships by girls," Denise goes on -- without naming names. (Nick has dated both Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, while Taylor Swift has written songs about her split from Joe.)
"But it's just about growing up and learning what it means to be in a relationship," she continues.
Denise defends her sons' decision to wear purity rings and talk about waiting until marriage to have sex.
"They've been criticized for proclaiming things they never proclaimed. And what's the criticism?" she asks. "They don't want to go out there giving everyone an STD? What's so terrible about that?"
When her boys do fall in love, she only has one requirement before accepting her: "She must sincerely and totally love my son!"
So how to land a Jonas Bro?
"People always ask, 'What's a girl have to do to get your attention?'" Joe says. "She has to be good to Mom."
