Urban Dictionary
Thirst Trap
A sexy photograph or flirty message posted on social media for the intent of causing others to publicly profess their attraction. This is done not to actually respond or satisfy any of this attraction, but to feed the posters ego or need for attention, at the expense of the time, reputation and sexual frustration of those who view the image or reply.
“Hey guys, are these shorts too tight?”
“Screw off with your thirst trap.”

What’s A Thirst Trap? This Selfie Trend Is All The Rage
OCT 27, 2017
Thirst trapping — what a drug! There’s no greater high you can get when you’re at a severe, emotional, rock bottom. Are you begging for attention from social media strangers or simply displaying your confidence to the world? It’s a heated debate, debated by mainly no one, but still. However, if you’re wondering what a thirst trap is, you’re not alone. Actually, you probably are alone. Where the hell have you been? Do I need to spend this article thirst-trap shaming you? I don’t have time for that. I’m busy!
To put it simply, and to be explained in more detail later, a thirst trap is when you post a provocative picture of yourself online in the hopes of garnering attention either from one person or from all of your followers.
