As my last post didn't had enough sources and references. Here are some more:-
”This and the following nine stanzas are not reproducible even in the semi obscurity of a learned European language…- Ralph T.H Griffith on Yajur Veda 23.20, p.213. 1899 Edition.
• Commentary by Mahidhara— >”…Since the horse is dead, the chief queen herself takes the penis [Shishan] of the dead horse and places it into her Vagina [Yoni]. She asks the horse to release semen in her [by saying] ‘May the vigorous male [horse], layer of semen, release semen in me’…” [Sanskrit Screenshot]
Now I fully acknowledge translation and commentaries differ as people sugar-coat religion with time.
Harivamsa Purana, Bhavishya Parva 3.5.11-13 >After the passage of some time, king janamejaya, who offers plenty of tributes (in sacrifices) observed the horse sacrifice as ordained.3-5-11 >devI vapuShTamA, the daughter of the king of kashi, went and slept with the slain horse, according to the ritual as prescribed. 3-5-12 >Seeing the queen with beautiful limbs, vAsava (indra) desired her. Entering the body of the dead horse, indra had intercourse with the queen. 3-5-13 [English translation]
Krishna Yajur Veda 7.4.19 (vii. 4.19.) [Source] The translation has been omitted and hasn't been officially translated by Hindus since. Hmm. I wonder why though? Here's a rough translation anyway— >"In the heavenly world be you two completely covered. [Queen says]- I will urge on the impregnator, you will urge on the impregnator; let the two of us stretch out our four legs. [Adhvaryu says]- Let the stallion, semen-producer, produce semen [insert semen]. Bring the penis into the two thighs, drive along the erect and unctuous one which is women’s living enjoyment, which is their hole-runner [cleaner], women’s dear secret (pleasure) which has hit the sardigrdi (clitoris?) in their black (haired) mark… This little bird which creeps around saying ‘ahalam’ knocks the penis into the slit; the vulva devours it."

SPILL THE SOMA, SIS
Within Shaivism, the Virabhadra's origins runs as follows. Sati was the youngest daughter of Daksha. While growing up, she set her heart on Shiva and worshipped him. In the Swayamvara of Sati, Daksha invited all the devas and princes except Shiva. Sati cast her garland into air, calling upon Shiva to receive it, and behold he stood in the midst of the court with the garland about his neck. Daksha had no choice but to get his daughter married to Shiva.
One day, Daksha invited all the devas in order to perform a great offering called the Ashwamedha yagna, omitting only Shiva. Sati's urge to attend the event, due to her affection towards her parents, overpowered the social etiquette of not going to an uninvited ceremony; thus, Daksha insulted her in front of his guests. Angered after hearing insults against her husband, she set herself ablaze by her inner yogāgni. The site where Sati had died later on became known as "Jwalamukhi devi".
When Shiva came to know about what had happened, with deep sorrow and anger, he plucked a lock from his hair and thrashed it on the ground. Both Veerabhadra and Bhadrakali were born from it. The former is believed to be the destroyer of Agnana: born with a tall, muscular body reaching the higher heavens, he was as dark as the stormy clouds, with three burning eyes and fiery hair. He also wore a garland of skulls and carried weapons. To provide him the power, arrived Bhadrakali, a wrathful incarnation of Devi.
Maheshwara replied, 'Spoil the sacrifice of Daksha'. Then the mighty Virabhadra, having heard the pleasure of his lord, bowed down his head to the feet of Shiva; and starting like a lion loosed from bonds, despoiled the sacrifice of Daksha, knowing that this had been created by the displeasure of Devi. She too in her wrath, as the fearful goddess Rudrakali, accompanied him, with all her train, to witness his deeds.
Virabhadra's life runs as follows. Shiva directed Virabhadra: "Lead my army against Daksha and destroy his sacrifice". On this direction of Shiva, Virabhadra appeared with Shiva's ganas in the midst of Daksha's assembly like a storm and broke the sacrificial vessels, polluted the offerings, insulted the Brahmin priests, trampled on Indra, broke the staff of Yama and scattered the gods on every side. The Devas fled in all directions, the sages cried "Hari, you're the protector of Daksha's Yagna. You solely are the performer as well as giver of fruits in the Yagna. Oh Lakshmi-Narayan!
