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. 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.
Here for this, but wish we were there.
What do we have here? Oh you know, just Saweetie lookin’ like a whole a$$ meal, and no we’re not talking about her McDonalds collab.
3 Rita Ora
Ummm sorry, what were we talking about…? Rita Ora just reset our brains with her
4 Charli XCX
This makes two weeks in a row for list newcomer Charli. And for those who dare to ask why, a picture is worth a thousand words right? So we’ll just let it do all the talking.
5 Megan Thee Stallion
Also back, claiming her spot two weeks in row, Hot Girl Meg, putting the Okaaayyyyy! in TikTok with this pool day video slay. Bet you can’t guess how many times we watched it.
6 Dua Lipa
Dua-ing are best not to drool over Dua’s latest vacay vid, but it’s posing to be a bit difficult. Seriously though, can you blame us?
