The Best Thirst Traps of 2023

Shawn Laib READ TIME: 10 MIN.

As we close in on the end of 2023, it's the perfect time to look at the sexiest thirst traps of the year. Celebrities have gifted us with some incredibly hot and exciting content in the last 12 months; bathtub photos, bulges in briefs, and random objects covering up the unmentionables only help to force the imaginations of fans into maximum overdrive.

We may want to marry our celebrity crushes, but the reality of never fulfilling this wish can be alleviated with a steamy IG photo. Here are the best thirst traps of 2023!

Michael Cimino


Michael Cimino has held a special place in LGBTQ+ TV fans' hearts ever since his role in Hulu's coming-of-age classic "Love, Victor." Cimino has since evolved into a heartthrob in real life, often posing with weekly thirst traps that show off his immense physical beauty. The most viral pictures in his bag this year probably come from this June 2023 montage of him in the bathtub wearing nothing but flowers. Cimino somehow stays classy and turns up the naughty meter at the same time!

Lil Nas X


Lil Nas X has actually had a relatively quiet 2023 by his standards. The "Old Town Road" singer hasn't been in the news as much as before and has stayed away from the social media controversies that typically surround him. Nas X still gifted the public with this sexy thirst trap in July 2023, showing his incredibly fit body and aesthetic in front of the water and buildings while on vacation. Here's hoping for some new music in 2024!

Taylor Zakhar Perez


"Red, White, & Royal Blue" was one of the biggest rom-coms of 2023 on Prime Video. Taylor Zakhar Perez starred next to Nicholas Galitzine in the adaptation of Casey McQuiston's novel, where he plays the son of the President of the United States (Uma Thurman). The gorgeous actor's sex appeal and abdominals certainly drew millions of eyes to the screen as he's no stranger to being a sex symbol after also appearing in Netflix's "Kissing Booth" film series. His semi-shirtless fashion show appearances make for memorable thirst traps on Instagram.

Noah Beck


Sometimes it seems unfair that all some people have to do in life to succeed is look pretty. When you look like social media megastar Noah Beck, endorsement deals and legions of thirsty fans follow you around daily. Beck is no stranger to teasing his contingent online while also adhering to his principles, never crossing a line into inappropriate. His thirst traps are often rated PG-13, allowing him to become the crush of teenagers and adults alike.
