Generally, people eat muscle meats. However, various cultures worldwide consider organ meat as a staple of their diet. Organ meats are called Offal (derived from the word “off-fall”). It refers to parts of animals that fall away when butchered, such as the blood, bones, tail, feet, or genitals.
The cow vagina is one of the offals that some nations use as a native delicacy. The taste of this organ meat depends on the food preparations or the amount of seasoning you put in the offal. In Vietnam, they cook the whole cow vag as street food that tastes sweet and sour.

More so, when you eat them raw. Some say raw cow vag is chewy with a bit of “boar taint” or off-taste. But who would dare to taste animal genitals raw? It would probably taste a little better when it is cooked. Because at the end of the day, it is still meat that would taste more tolerable, depending on the food preparation.

Although this is rare, it can lead to more serious complications, like dementia and death. However, there is not enough evidence to prove that humans can get mad cow disease from consuming a cow’s genitals.
