Congratulations, you’ve made it past hump day (aka Wednesday) and onto Thursday, which thanks to alliteration and Instagram is also known as #ThirstTrapThursday.
Now speaking directly to those of you who were adults the first time low rise jeans were a thing, according to Urban Dictionary, a thirst trap is a “sexy photograph or flirty message posted on social media.” Some definitions argue that thirst traps are inherently attention-seeking, referring to a user's “thirst" as a colloquialism likening sexual frustration to dehydration. Or simply that the goal is to motivate likes and slides in the DM. To those people we say, ummm… yeah, and what about it?
Since IG’s algorithm doesn’t even care what day it is when you see a pic on your feed, we’ll settle with simply using the day to present you with a collection, of what in our expert opinion are some of this weeks top tier thirst traps. And when we say week we of course mean starting the Friday right after through the following Thursday (also known as Today).
So without further ado, in no particular order - the traps have been set below.
1 Britney Spears
Britney said it’s “Booty time” so it’s freakin' booty time y’all. Don’t try and convince us otherwise — just look at these pics.
2 Camila Cabello
Well, we’re glad you eventually posted Camila, because were hashtag OBSESSED.
3 Selena Gomez
This ladies and gents, is what we like to call a classy trap.
Look up SLAY in the dictionary. This is what you’ll see.
5 Addison Rae
It’s giving Turks and CAKE-os.
