Kick Ass Pictures was founded in 1997 by Mark Kulkis with the mission of, in the words of current owner Melissa, “the simple goal to show girls really getting off.” Their movie output began with Barefoot Confidential, which quickly became a tentpole series for the company. Other early series include Chica Boom and Grrl Power.

Kick Ass experimented with several niches and genres within adult, and soon had several popular vignette series. Chief among them was Teen Power. Specs Appeal was a long-running series focused on women wearing glasses, and the series Kick Ass Chicks was used as a way of spreading its focus to different aspects from title to title. KAP also developed hugely popular gonzo series that pushed the boundaries of the day and asserted themselves into more hardcore territory, such as 10 Man Cum Slam, 5 Guy Cream Pie, and A Load In Every Hole.

During the 2003 California Recall vote of then-Governor Gray Davis (that eventually resulted in the appointment of Arnold Schwarzenegger), blonde bombshell actress Mary Carey signed an exclusive contract with KAP. In a marketing stunt unmatched in the adult industry that catapulted both Carey and Kick Ass into the mainstream media, Mary Carey announced her candidacy for Governor with a campaign managed by Kulkis. This also resulted in several big hits for Mary, including her politically-titled Run Mary Run.

Since its inception, Kick Ass has been known for its specialty in foot fetish content. And in 2007, staked its claim as the premier provider of cuckold videos with its landmark Cum Eating Cuckolds. A subsequent series that has become very popular is their Bullied Bi Cuckolds, which proved culturally important in the world of adult for helping to bring bisexual titles more into the mainstream.

Popular web content studio ATKingdom partnered with Kick Ass for a distribution deal when they began looking into DVD production. A successful partnership lasted several years. It was with ATKingdom that the husband-and-wife owners, Melissa and Matt, started working with Kick Ass. After assuming control of the studio they brought their daughter, Micky Linares, aboard as the affiliate manager and operations manager. Kick Ass continues to be a family-owned and operated production company.

In 2017, KAP began to produce new installments of long-dormant series; a trend that Melissa promises will continue. They released Chica Boom 49, 9 years after the previous entry. Full Gallon Juggs! 3 was released 11 years after the first two entries. In 2018, Kick Ass again made waves by casting AVN Hall-Of-Famer Sean Michaels in his first bisexual scene, for Black Bi Cuckolding 35. The future remains bright for the Kick Ass Pictures, as they continue to work on honoring their history and further their name in the cuckolding arena.
