Humping isn't always sexual - sometimes it's just an excitement behaviour, and sometimes it arises from anxiety. One humping incident doesn't mean you need to blue-light him for castration, honestly!

Castration doesn't necessarily stop humping as it's not necessarily a sexual behaviour.

Two out of my three boys are castrated (both done at one year old) and they all get a bit humpy when they're particularly excited. The entire one has just turned a year old and the 'casual humping' is definitely diminishing although he does still like a good hump of his blanket after his tea grin
