Thirst Trap

What does thirst trap mean?

A provocative action, message, or photo

A thirst trap is something provocative that causes a person to be thirsty. It may be something said or done but most commonly takes the form of a pic posted on social media.

Males are the most common victims of thirst traps. When they see a photo posted by a female that is sexually suggestive they become thirsty for the female and usually post incredibly stupid comments. Women may post thirst traps on accident or on purpose in hopes of breadcrumbing a guy.


OMG, her thirst traps are lethal.
Yeah, about 90% of the photo is cleavage.

You gotta watch out for those thirst traps on social media
