New York, May 6 : Besides having the credit of producing best-selling books, Norman Mailer also had a kinky side, as his former mistress reveals.
Mailer's long time lover Carole Mallory, who recently sold her X-rated writings about Mailer's voracious carnal appetite to his alma mater, Harvard University, said that the Pulitzer Prize winner "liked me to dress up in erotic outfits, and we'd role play."
Mailer and Mallory were involved from 1983 to 1992, during his marriage to sixth wife Norris Church.
In one of their kinky games, she'd portray a struggling actress willing to do anything to get a choice movie role, Mallory revealed.
"He particularly liked to play the role of producer. The scene would be the casting couch," the New York Post quoted her, as saying.
Mailer also liked to pump her for information about her previous lovers.
"He liked to hear the details of the sexual behavior of stars with whom I'd had sex," Mallory said.
"Norman was turned on by hearing about my sexual encounters with movie stars . . . hearing about my sexcapades gave him great pleasure," she added.
Mallory claims to have dated Warren Beatty, Rod Stewart, Robert De Niro, Richard Gere and Peter Sellers.
