Joe Jonas is getting candid — again.

Last week, the DNCE singer opened up about losing his virginity to his then-girlfriend Ashley Greene. In a new interview with Notion, the star, 27, reveals how his pastor father discovered his son was watching porn.

“I would use my address to log into the websites, and I did this for seven days straight,” Jonas tells the outlet. “A month later — and by the way, my dad was a pastor at the time — for a week or two straight there was a postcard with a naked woman on it saying ‘Come join us again Joe’ or ‘We really miss you’ or ‘You naughty boy, come visit us again.'”

Jonas — who along with his brothers all wore purity rings in their teens — also talked about the pressures he and his brothers, Nick and Kevin, were under during their time with the Disney Channel.

“We were working with Disney in 2007 when the Vanessa Hudgens nude-photo scandal happened,” says the star. “We’d hear execs talking about it, and they would tell us that they were so proud of us for not making the same mistakes, which made us feel like we couldn’t ever mess up … we put incredible pressure on ourselves, the kind of pressure that no teenager should be under.”

And though it was a tough way to grow up, Jonas says his teenage experiences “molded me to where I am today.”

“It’s tough to say that it’s a bad thing because I feel pretty open, and there’s not much I won’t talk about [now],” he says. “There is a lot of obsession over secrecy in this day and age, and you’re a kid living in a grown-up’s world. I definitely feel for a lot of young artists going through a lot of similar things.”
