If your dog is not neutered, it needs to be done NOW (sorry for the caps, but I don't have any other way to show emphasis). He is a teenager now, and this is the best time to neuter.
NCarolina is right, your dog is expressing dominance, but it is not something you want him to do all the time, and neutering will slow that way down or even stop it. Dogs do not have sex lives, they just respond to testosterone, and males who are neutered are much better companions when they don't have to deal with that all the time.
The world is overflowing with unwanted puppies and kittens, and over 12 million are killed in the U.S. each year because there aren't enough homes for them all. And remember that neutering means your dog will never get the most common kind of cancer in male dogs--testicular cancer.
Very common and normal! It will probably stop when you get him neutered. If that is the only thing he likes to hump, you're lucky. Watch Victoria Stilwell, Its Me Or The Dog, Season 2 Episode 1, "Pugsley". It's on Youtube
