Humping the Pillows?

Milo (at 18 months) has developed a very weird behavior. Every day at about 4 pm. he attempts to hump the pillows that are on my sofa. All attempts at correction seem hopeless - he keeps going back to them. I finally just put them away for a while. Does anyone else have this problem? He's been neutered, but that seems to make no difference.

Henry has a "special blanket" that he likes to hump in the evening hours.
I keep it in his crate and sometimes he disappears and I find him in the room where the crate is with the blanket out of the crate and him humping it in the middle of the room.
. . . reminds me . . . I gotta wash that thing . . .

Lucy has a couple of stuffed toys that she tries to hump. Its a rare occurence but when she does it I laugh so hard I cry. She usually does this in the later evening hours and only when she has extra energy to expell. My DH gets upset and tells me I am encouraging her and takes the toy away.

When Rufus was an only boy he would turn his bed on it's side and hump it. Now the boys hump each other, the girl humps the boys, they all form a conga line LOL! It's more just a group excitement thing once they are all playing together, some with tussle for toys and some will hump. I usually try to dissaude the humping and get out some tuggers and tossers.

Here's my question: is the humping a natural behavior that I should ignore or should I correct it?

NORMAL, unless he is humping company or every dog he sees. It sounds like a very discreet system that he has

I think it is natural. My toy poodle does it when she is distressed or over excited and it calms her. So far Chico who is a very laid back boy doesn't do it to anything.
