As someone else mentioned, the late Beverley Halstead worked on this a
bit.  I thought I read about this recently in Don Lessem's "Dinosaurs
Rediscovered", but I can't find it there, so maybe it was in "The
Complete T-Rex", which I read around the same time.

Paraphrasing, what I read was:

The late Beverley Halstead did some well-regarded work in paleontology,
but his speculations about dinosaur sex were probably not up to the same
standard.  However those who saw Halstead and a female assistant
simulating dinosaur sex on a stage will not soon forget the experience.

Sounds like it was more fun than the average conference presentation.
