The 'Hot Squat' is the latest racy posing trend sweeping Instagram

As members of today's society, we are now seemingly required to live two lives; one is our day-to-day reality, and the other is what we might dub our 'social media life'.

Many of us spend hours agonising over the perfect caption for the perfectly filtered and edited photographs, and in doing so forget to live in the moment, much to our own detriment.

Of course, many others make a startling good living from documenting their lives on social media, monetising their followers by advertising the latest brand of charcoal toothpaste with a dazzling smile and a suggestive wink. But at what cost, if they forget to live in the meantime?

As social media continues to expand exponentially, so to do certain 'trends' - many of them aimed at women - and the latest to rise to prominence on Instagram is known as the 'hot squat'.

As the name might suggest, it's a seductive method of posing adopted largely by women. Here are some of the famous names who have adopted the hot squat on their own profiles.
