This seems to be pretty normal. I am member of another website called baby center and so many babies do it. Most of the moms on there say not to punish him or her for doing it because that can cause issues with their self esteem. We interpret this the way we do because we are adults who have had sexual experiences or understand those movements to mean something sexual to us. To the baby he has just found something he likes. By the way the reason I looked this up is because my 16 month old started to hump my arm at night. His Dad didn't believe me when I told him until he humped his dads leg. His Dad is a great guy and my baby humps his hands and the dogs and tries to hump us. We just push him off of us and let him be. We do not want him to feel ashamed for exploring himself. I think its normal and his Dad most likely is wondering the something as you but may be too embarrassed about the topic to talk to you about it. IF you are worried about the Dad keep an eye out for bruises or physical harm. Otherwise I bet he is a good Dad. Baby is just exploring himself. I also know that not all babies do this. You probably raised kids who didnt hump and this seems scary but its pretty normal please do more research and check out baby center .com
