Simply just visiting her website (www.stellamuse.com) fills you with an unwavering heightened sense of empowerment, strength and femininity (go on…do it!). Elise Carr is the woman behind Stella Muse. Other than embodying the Stella Warrior Woman in the flesh she is a writer, holistic coach, proud feminist and drop-dead-gorgeous model with a passion for the rise of the divine feminine and tools for tapping into the power of our yonis and breasts (my kinda gal). In the space of a week Elise and I had both attended each other’s workshops in Perth, and to say the least, we had a lot in common, so I just HAD to interview her for this Sexy Series….
What does ‘sexy’ mean to you?
Sexy is having an energy of sensual confidence, that burns brightest when I am my most authentic self. It is a form of sacred sexual union that for me means being in sync with my Divine Feminine. When I am honouring my unbridled self on a physical, emotional, spiritual, mental and sexual level, that is electric, and that sparks the sexy energy I radiate.
When do you feel most sexy?
This depends, it can be first thing in the morning as I unfurl from slumber and look into my Loves eyes. Other times I feel sexiest alone in a bathtub scattered with rose petals and candles around me appreciating the body I have. Tribal dancing at a gathering sharing the energy of others in utter bliss ignites an earthy, sexy vibe. Though I can also feel super sexy sporting a classy number and heels, sipping champagne with my Love.
What are some rituals you practice that make you feel sexy?
Naked yoga and meditation under sunshine in the backyard – it is a heightened connection with the elements in our most raw, natural form that makes this sexy.
Massaging my body once or twice a day with organic coconut oil after a workout & shower. I send love to each part of my body, limb by limb, as I work the coconut oil into every inch of my skin.
Choosing a set of lingerie from a rather large collection in my draw and wearing it under a chic outfit for the day, with killer heels!
Your favourite sexy tune?
The Divinyls, I Touch Myself – gets me every time.
Though I can’t go past Robert Palmer – Simply Irresistible. Vacuuming the house to that track in some sexy lingerie means I end up getting a workout and a clean home!
What are some things a man (or woman) does that make you feel especially sexy?
Light some candles, put some music on and dance with me … then slowly undress me. Taking the time to apply the art of seducing a woman is super, super sexy. A lot of this has to do with that special person being present with me; where nothing else exists.
Deep eye contact and a cheeky/sexy smile across a room.
Hand on my thigh under a table followed by neck kisses.
Acknowledgment and appreciation is sexy. Being shown you are appreciated through loving words, gestures and thoughtful ‘little things’ … gently lifting my chin up, pushing my hair off my face. It’s these moments of elegant simplicity that can evoke sexiness.
What is your body language when you feel sexy in your skin?
Confident, open, unbridled, loving, giving … when I feel sexy my body welcomes receiving and the desire to give increases. Movement is fluid, my lips long to be kissed, my smile widens, my skin glows, I crave hands on my body both firm and strong & soft and gentle, I want to be ravished and worshipped, as much as I desire to ravish and worship, and not hold back.
If you could have dinner with the sexiest person on Earth (living…so it can come true) who would it be and why?
I already share dinner with my sexiest person on Earth.
But to play along, I would say Ian Somerhalder – I admire his creation of the not for profit foundation, ‘ISF’, and how it is helping so many around the world discover, feed, and pursue their own unique valuable passions with him as the driving force at the forefront. Dinner with him would be fascinating, inspirational and yes he is an attractive specimen to sit opposite!
Intellect, heart, honesty, purpose drive passion, and looks; now that can be sexy!
Three of your most sexiest sounding words:
As a writer I am a words person through and through, so choosing just three is like asking Carrie Bradshaw to choose her favourite Monolo’s!
Three of your sexiest foods:
Chilled organic strawberries soaked in champagne,
Raw, dark, organic chocolate.
If you could invent a Sexy Superhero, what would her name be, how would she dress and what is her super hero powers?
She would be a combination of Wonder Woman’s strength and feminist values, Pocahontas’s innate wisdom and medicine woman knowledge, and Aphrodite’s alluring femininity in one. She is my ‘Stella Warrior’ that I created for the coaching branch of StellaMuse.
I drew her with Superhero’s and Goddesses in mind. She wears an electric blue, strapless body suit with silver piping. Barefooted with silver and gold warrior cuffs on her wrists, her dark brown hair billows wildly around her face and her emerald green eyes are piercing. The symbol of the ‘maiden, mother and crone’ is upon her third eye; representing women’s wisdom, character and strengths through their key life phases – that being in their youth, in motherhood (any form of creation be that of children or otherwise) and of the wise elder woman we can learn so much from.
She is a warrior with invincible determination and unwavering loving devotion. Her greatest power is the ability to reawaken the inner flame in each soul she connects with – the ‘flame’ of their passion, purpose and desire to live their true calling.
What could you do even more of to make you feel sexy?
Strut around naked more, skinny dip and moon bake. I was brought up with the women on my Mums side of the family being naked around each other; either poolside, sun baking or trying on clothes, especially since my Nana was a dressmaker, and Mum sewed too so we were pining fabrics and whipping outfits on and off often. Being a model I have done and still do spend plenty of time backstage in a g-string or at fittings in much the same attire. Nudity in that regard is pure and natural. I embraced this and loved being naked until I had a disconnect with my body, my Yoni in particular … it took some time to get that back and feel truly at ease with happily taking my knickers off again in broad daylight. I had to heal myself, to embrace and love utterly everything that makes me me in the physical form, both alone and intimately. That’s part of the reason I value practicing with a jade egg, especially in front of a mirror. This is such a powerful practice; to truly embrace and worship myself inside and out. The greatest gift from this personal journey is to now pass the knowledge and wisdom onto the women I connect with through my coaching, workshops, events & Goddess Circles, so they too can heal and awaken their most Divine Feminine and powerful selves.
Also slowing down and taking my time with myself and life. ‘Slowing down’ is key and something we could all practice. My Yoni told me this the first time I actually spoke to her and listened to what she had to say. SLOW DOWN – while the feminine can be a raging ocean of unstoppable movement she can also be a calm cool breeze, and that is what I cherish more now – harmonising between these two points and feeling the true value in embracing stillness with a hand on my heart just breathing, or slow worship like Yoni massage and gentle actions of loving kindness for my body, heart and soul.
What’s your favourite sexy body part on yourself?
My décolletage & breasts, and my smile…

My main sideline project on the go is the writing and interviewing for my second book, Yoni: Awaken the Power of the Divine Feminine it’s a journey I started some time ago. I am excited to be compiling a spirited, powerful resource that is both practical and heartfelt to educate, inspire and entertain women of all ages. Our connection with our Yoni is a connection with the Source of Life, our creative powerhouse and beyond … to be our most Divine selves it is in our Yoni that we must start. Sharing this message on a global scale is a driving force behind creating this book and I trust enriching the Yoni movement.
*I am interviewing globally, from industry experts who work in the female health, wellness and ‘Yoni’ fields to women who would like to anonymously share their person Yoni story. If any Sexy Series readers would like to be included feel free to contact me!
