THE Brisbane Supreme Court has released saucy Tinder texts allegedly sent between Gable Tostee and Warriena Wright in the days leading up to the New Zealand tourist’s death.
Tostee has pleaded not guilty to murdering Ms Wright, 26, who fell to her death from the 14th floor balcony of his Avalon apartment in Surfers Paradise in the early hours of August 8, 2014.
Although he is not accused of physically pushing Ms Wright to her death, Tostee is alleged to have intimidated the 26-year-old so greatly, that she felt the only way to escape was to climb off his locked balcony.

It’s alleged the pair first started messaging each other on the dating app Tinder on August 1 before meeting in person on August 7.
The pair’s Tinder conversations and text messages were tendered to the Supreme Court during day three of Tostee’s murder trial on Wednesday.
The messages revealed Tostee had told Ms Wright she looked “delicious” and that he wanted to “dirty things” to her. He also asked the 26-year-old whether she could be a “freak in the sheets”.
Tostee: “You look delicious. I want to do dirty things to you.”
Ms Wright: “That usually work?”
Tostee: “Haha, not trying to make anything ‘work’, im just saying. Got a problem with that? :P”
Ms Wright: “Lol fair enough. I was just asking :P”
Tostee: “So you’re down with that then? Can you be a freak in the sheets Cletes (Ms Wright’s Tinder alias)?”
Ms Wright: “Lol probably not. Depends”
Tostee: “What does it depend on?”
Ms Wright: “What ive had to drink! Lol.”
Tostee: “Lets get drunk together, I’m a pornstar after a few drinks!”
CCTV footage was also played in court, showing the moment Tostee met up with Ms Wright in Cavill Avenue before the pair made their way to Tostee’s Avalon apartment.

More than 40 minutes of security camera footage was played to jurors, showing the pair entering the Surfers Paradise beer garden for three minutes before walking into a bottle shop and purchasing a six pack of beer.
Ms Wright was last seen getting into a lift with Tostee at Avalon apartments.
In the hour and a half after Ms Wright plunged to her death, Tostee is seen on CCTV wandering aimlessly around Surfers Paradise. At one point, he is even seen sitting eating pizza.
Photos from Tostee’s medical examination were also shown to the court.
