->''Derk was the nyght as pich, or as the cole,\\
And at the wyndow out she putte hir hole,\\
And Absolon, hym fil no bet ne wers,\\
But with his mouth he kiste hir naked ers''
-->--'''Creator/GeoffreyChaucer''', "[[Literature/TheCanterburyTales The Millers Tale]]" (see below for translation).

Like LiteralAssKicking, certain rear-end related sayings aren't always figurative. Often used as a form of embarassment, Literal Ass Kissing is a rather ultimate form of humiliation and submission.

A commmon variant is the LiteralGenie version, when someone isn't familiar with the idiom and assumes it's an order.

See also LiteralAssKicking.

!!Examples:

[[folder:Film]]
* A TakeThat gag in ''Film/SpaceJam'':
-->'''Porky:''' Ah b-b-b-b- correction,we're WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes.
-->'''Daffy:''' And as such, property of Warner Brothers Inc.! -lifts up WB-emblazoned behind and kisses it- MMMMMWAH!
* The 2000 film version of ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas''.
* In ''{{Shrek}}'', the dragon is about to kiss Donkey when Shrek drops in to save him, and she ends up kissing Shrek's exposed hindquarters instead. She is not too pleased. [[StealthPun Either way, she'd have kissed an ass.]]
* A crude punk among the gang harassing Jackie and the lady running the market in ''RumbleInTheBronx'' taunts Jackie by saying if he kisses the punk's ass, he'll let him go, and then bares said ass to him. Jackie and the gang are in a parking garage, and Jackie promptly breaks the antenna off a car and uses it to ''whip'' the punk's bare ass instead.
* In the 80's sex comedy ''Film/BachelorParty'' the evil blond preppie falls, like, 20 stories and [[CarCushion winds up butt-first in the sunroof of a car]]. Neither he, the passengers nor the car suffer any kind of damage, but the passengers end up kissing the guy's butt when they lean in to kiss each other.
* An accidental case of this is in the movie ''Film/{{Mannequin}}'', as when two guys, Richards and Felix, plan to have Jonathan Switcher work for a competing fashion clothing store by stealing mannequins from the Prince & Company display window, Richards has his mouth buried in a mannequin's behind while carrying it.

[[folder:Literature]]
* OlderThanPrint: "The Millers Tale" in ''Literature/TheCanterburyTales'', which might also be the first ever literary reference to "open your mouth and close your eyes..."
-->Derk was the nyght as pich, or as the cole,
-->And at the wyndow out she putte hir hole,
-->And Absolon, hym fil no bet ne wers,
-->But with his mouth he kiste hir naked ers
** Modern English translation:
--->The night was dark as pitch, or coal, and at the window she put out her hole, and Absolom, who knew no better or worse, but with his mouth he kissed her naked arse.
** Subverted later in the same story, when Absalom gets a red hot poker and returns to the window. When he calls for his kiss again, the lady's lover sticks his ass out the window to pull the same prank. [[ToastedBuns *Sizzle* ]]
* In James Joyce's ''{{Ulysses}}'', Leopold Bloom has a habit of kissing his wife's bottom as a greeting.
* Used as a combined joke and point of horror in ''[[ModernTalesOfFaerie Tithe]]'' by Holly Black: after finding out a villain's TrueName, the main character sarcastically tells him to kiss her ass, and doesn't realize he's magically compelled to obey. "That is the true nature of servitude . . . Not at all pretty. In the future, I suggest you be less inventive with your insults."

[[folder: Live-Action Television]]
* On ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', a rich donor to the hospital is admitted as a patient. JD [[ImagineSpot fantasizes]] that Dr. Kelso comes into the room and lifts up the patient's bedspread to kiss her butt.
* Thanks to the LiteralGenie nature of the magic bean in ''TheTenthKingdom'', this trope is the result when ButtMonkey ([[{{Pun}} ha-ha!]]) Tony Lewis wishes for his boss "and his entire family to ''kiss my ass'' and be my slaves forever". It doesn't help that at least one of the Murrays must have been something of a brown-noser already, since he insists on kissing Tony's ass repeatedly. (Or could that also have been covered under the "forever" part?)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The titular ass-breath from The Coup's song "Ass Breath Killers" is a breath condition that one gets from kissing too much ass.
* In the song "Without Me", Music/{{Eminem}} challenges his MoralGuardian critics to "come on dip, bum on your lips".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* From Wrestling/{{WWE}}: ''Wrestling/VinceMcMahon'' 's "Kiss My Ass" Club, created so Vince could bribe a wrestler that's been doing something he ought not have done. Wrestlers would watch Vince arrogantly bend over and reveal to them his buff and beautiful magila. It was forced closed when [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] made him kiss [[StoutStrength Rikishi Fatu's]] ass. Despite this, Mr. [=McMahon=] still takes advantage of his power with this club to this date.
** Wrestling/ScottSteiner and Wrestling/{{Test}} opened their own club, where wrestlers and divas had to pretty much do the same thing to their manly butts. After forcing the only near recipient into the corner of the ring and taking turns farting on her, Wrestling/MickFoley ended it before things got too evil.
** Mitch was made to kiss Wrestling/TripleH's ass. His face was shoved in by Wrestling/ShawnMichaels.
** Similarly, to the first ending of the kiss my ass club, Vince's face was shoved in the ass of Wrestling/TheBigShow.
* The Rock and Mr. Ass once had a match where the loser had to kiss the winner's ass. Rock won and forced Mr. Ass to kiss the ass of a fat woman pulled from the crowd instead.
* Implied by the lip-print tattoo on Wrestling/{{Francine}}'s butt.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Clive Barker's play ''TheHistoryOfTheDevil''. The Devil makes it a point to ask several characters, although very politely. Probably a reference to the ''"osculum infame"'' (see Other).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** When Randy Marsh accidentally says [[NWordPrivileges the N word]] on TV, he apologizes to Jesse Jackson by kissing his ass on camera. This also turns the episode title "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson" into a DoubleMeaningTitle.
** Another ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' example: in the episode "Fun with Veal", Cartman refuses to help Stan and Kyle rescue the calves from the veal farm unless Kyle kisses him on the arse. Kyle reluctantly agrees, and Cartman lets off a fart in his face.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Peter is riding a tricycle. Because of Peter's age and size, the tricycle breaks. Peter's mom is later seen putting a band-aid on Peter's bum and kissing it. Peter runs off with glee.
* In the story where ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' go to Ireland, Bart tricks people into kissing his bottom (which has been spraypainted) instead of the Blarney Stone, although this trick backfired when an Irish version of Nelson decides to carve his initials in the "rock."

[[folder:Other]]
* [[http://despair.com/flattery.html Flattery]]
--> If you want to get to the top, prepare to kiss a lot of the bottom.
* Medieval witches were believed to give the Devil the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osculum_infame Osculum infame]]" or "Kiss of Shame" when meeting him. It was essentially supposed to be the Satanic version of kissing the pope's feet.
* An old tradition in the South of France: people who lose a game of ''petanque'' 13-0 are supposed to "kiss Fanny's bottom". Many bars and petanque fields have a drawing or sculpture of Fanny presenting her butt to the loser, as seen [[http://photos.blogs.liberation.fr/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/2007/10/25/100_2919.jpg here]].
* SlashFic. That is all.
* There are plenty of comics whose punch line is "Come on, Literature/{{Pinocchio}}, tell me a huge lie."
* One of the specific charges of heresy levied against TheKnightsTemplar was that initiates were required to be stripped naked and kissed by the preceptor on the navel, the posterior and the mouth.
