It was just a matter of time until posting sexy pictures on Instagram became a real concept. Thirst traps, which Urban Dictionary defines as the art of posting sensual images on social media, is the internet’s best excuse to show everyone’s features. But the art of the thirst trap goes beyond just posting a seductive picture; it’s about concealing your ulterior motives of luring the masses to your best assets.

Just scroll down your Instagram feed and it’s likely you’ll encounter some celebrity looking shy for no reason or having breakfast with no shirt on. The photo is usually captioned with a quote or phrase that has nothing to do with the image. Let’s take a look at some examples.

Exhibit A:

(What does the movie Killing Sarai has to do with William Levy’s upper chest? Nothing.)

Exhibit B:

(The suit? Baseball? Draw me a map, ARod.)

But the art of thirst trap is much more than just a sexy picture with a random caption. It’s the art of inducing that double-tap and thirsty comments on Instagram. Here are some techniques Latino celebrities have mastered that you can easily adapt.
