Sex and secrets in the Jodi Arias trial

  • Prosecution says photos on camera found at crime scene show Jodi committing murder
  • Jodi Arias is charged with the murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander

Simone Bienne, a psychosexual and relationship therapist, analyzes the Jodi Arias trial and calls it a “real-life fatal attraction.”  Bienne points to sex-addictive and extreme love-addictive behaviors and even borderline personality traits with a fear of abandonment and a murderous rage.

Bienne said she wonders if Jodi Arias felt violated by Travis and had gone through some trauma in the past, then did she harm his body as a way to get him back?

Jodi Arias is on trial for killing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. She stabbed him 29 times, slashed his throat and shot him.  But Arias’ defense team claims it was in self-defense.
