Oh, sure, cranky old dead writer Norman Mailer was weird about sex, as the Harvard Crimson reported last week. But how weird? Aren't you just dying to know on a Monday morning? Well, Page Six is aching to tell you: "fantasy role playing" weird, with a Hollywood fetish. The literary giant and sometime avant-guard filmmaker liked to be told certain stories:

"He liked to hear the details of the sexual behavior of stars with whom I'd had sex," Mallory says. "Norman was turned on by hearing about my sexual encounters with movie stars . . . hearing about my sexcapades gave him great pleasure." She claims to have dated Warren Beatty, Rod Stewart, Robert De Niro, Richard Gere and Peter Sellers.

Oh God, there really is going to be a sex movie, isn't there?
