Ugh, no thanks.
Actually we did a little bit of MIPS assembly in my architectures class so I guess I could say I've had an introduction, but MIPS is much easier than x86 from what I hear and considering how unlikely it is that I would ever code for a MIPS processor I'm not sure it counts. Back when I did BASIC a lot there was a bit of inline assembly for fast graphics routines as I recall as well, and the first graphical stuff I did in C++ used it as well (although that didn't work with a Windows compiler only with old DOS ones, so I quit doing that pretty quickly). So I guess it falls under the same category as ML and Prolog: I couldn't code my way out of a wet paper bag, but I have done it before.
