Andy gets very amorous with my kids' stuffed animals - it really borders on the obscene
He almost goes into a trance and will sometimes make an awful meowing noise and get mad if you try to make him quit. Then he proceeds to lick himself in an obviously aroused way. I can honestly say that I had never seen a cat penis before we got Andy - have to say its kind of one of those things I'd rather NOT see. I keep thinking OMG my cat is a perv!!! He will even occasionally try to do his back leg kneading thing to my female cat (she hisses at him and makes him go away) or my dogs (they don't know what to think and usually get up and leave). I keep hoping he will grow out of it. He is almost 4, though, so I'm doubtful.
Your Andy and my Forrest seem to be very much alike. I've had plenty of male cats throughout my life and I've NEVER had one that ummm...."loved" his Meowmy so much. Almost every morning now I am awakened to him humping away at my leg underneath the blanket. He just grabs onto the blanket with his teeth and does his thing all the while making these strange cat noises. Not only do I hate waking up this way but my Husband really gets annoyed by this. Sometimes he also tries to hump on Lilly, but she gets really irritable and will hiss at him when he tries.
Forrest was a feral rescue and neutered at just over 2 lbs - so I know he never had a chance to get any adult male cat hormones in his system.
I told my Feline Vet about it and she said it's common in neutered males, but not easy to stop. The best thing to do is get him a "love buddy" (aka Stuffed toy) that I can transfer him off of my legs to in the mornings. Eventually he will just "love" on his buddy and not me.
