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?
While celebs don’t need or reserve any particular day of the week to share their thirst inducing pics with the masses, there’s something nice about devoting this particular day of the week to show off your assets (insert winky face emoji).
But 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. Enjoy.
1 Hailee Steinfeld
Finally! Hailee blessed us with this jaw-dropping thirst trap after we already posted last weeks list. It hit us like a arrow threw the heart and has literally been burning a hole in our Thirst Trap Archives IG folder ever since. So yeah, we’re making an exception and letting it have the moment it deserves.
2 Kylie Jenner
The pic might be old, but the Kylie Swim news is relatively new and the post is only 2 days old. Plus umm just look at it, need we even go on.
Don’t be fooled by the gorgeous yet subtle cover photo ya’ll — keep swiping and you’ll soon be begging for a sip of water. Get it… lol… cuz you’ll be thirsty. Some advice, take your time scrolling through this photo set of Normani rocking the Ivy Park Rodeo collection, for real tho, even that sunset made us feel things.
4 Demi Lovato
Demi is rocking her “birthday suit” and serving us some cake by the ocean realness (hold the melon). Long story short —they’re fierce, glowing, and obviously have us hella thirsty.
5 Summer Walker
Even with our screen brightness all the way up, these Summer Walker thirst traps have us begging for more… exposure. Whatever tho, still worth it. Thank you Summer, for always understanding the assignment.
Coming in hot and mere moments before this list was set to be posted, Rihanna came through with Savage X Fenty Vol. 3 show promo for the ultimate mic drop moment. NGL, we might need an IV hook-up for this one. Now please excuse as we go watch it like 100 more times.
