On Feb. 27, 2013, prosecutor Juan Martinez continued his cross-examination of accused murderer Jodi Arias, as the two bantered back and forth about sex acts Arias performed with slain Ariz. man Travis Alexander.
According to AZCentral.com, after testifying earlier in the week that at times she felt like a prostitute following sex with Alexander, on Wednesday, she acknowledged enjoying and often instigating “raunchy sex acts” with him.
The prosecution played recorded phone calls and text messages that indicated Arias was a willing participant when it came to sex with Alexander.
“So when you tell us you felt like a prostitute it seems to be contradictory,” Martinez said.
After a call was played in which Arias was heard telling Alexander, “You are amazing… you made me feel like a goddess,” Martinez asked, “You were actually into it as much as he was, right?”

Arias simply responded with “Yes,” reports AZCentral.com.
Martinez also got Arias to agree that the sexual relationship she had with Alexander was completely consensual.
He also questioned her about the numerous lies she told law enforcement, friends, and family shortly after killing Alexander, regarding his demise. Initially she claimed she knew nothing about his death, later blaming his murder on masked intruders. Eventually she admitted killing him, claiming she did so in self-defense.
Arias told the jury, “I couldn’t keep my stories straight.”
Prosecutors argue Arias, 32, killed Alexander, 30, in cold blood as he showered in his Mesa home in 2008. He was stabbed 27 times, his throat was slashed, and he was shot in the head.
If convicted of his murder, Arias could face the death penalty.
