These Are the Hottest, Steamiest, Most OMG Celebrity Thirst Traps of 2017

By Namina Forna

Thirst trap:

noun

A shameless attempt by a celebrity or other social media savvy personage to elicit interest from others by posting sexually provocative pictures on social media platforms.

The phrase thirst trap has been around for a while, but it first started gaining traction in 2011, when that venerable arbiter of all things pop culture, the urban dictionary, saw fit to post a definition of it on their site. Since then, thirst traps have been a social media minefield – popping up across the internet with succulent regularity to catch unwary passersby in a desert of sexual frustration.

Kim Kardashian is a thirst trap. Khloe and the other three too. Idris Elba – thirst trap in a bespoke suit. All the boys from every boyband ever, thirst traps in training. The point is, thirst traps are everywhere, but for now, here are the thirst traps of 2017.
