Arias' Testimony: Can it sway the jury in her favor?

PHOENIX -

Jodi Arias took the stand Monday and continued with vulgar, sexually graphic testimony of the alleged abuse by Travis Alexander.

"He got angry and he crossed the room and he started shaking me and he said, I'm f****** sick of you.  And he slammed me on the floor at the foot of his bed...he said don't act like it hurts...called me a b**** and kicked me in the ribs," said Arias on Monday.

Arias is accused of stabbing and slashing the victim 27 times and shooting him in the head.  She claims it was self-defense.

We've seen this testimony now for four days and she seems to be talking directly to the jury.

It's almost uncomfortable at times.

With her jaw dropping testimony on the stand, we want to know -- is the jury buying it? What are they thinking as she looks at them and talks about her relationship with the victim?
