Is this normal?

Hi everyone,
I have a mature sulcata tortoise (not sure of his exact age) and this summer he’s been obsessively trying to find thing to hump. He did start becoming more sexually active last summer but much more so this year…. He’s actually flipped himself over a couple times trying to get on things that were too tall (we have since removed those things from where he can access them). He can spend 2-3 hours humping whatever he can find and making grunting noises. Is this normal behavior for a sulcata male? Does anyone have any tips? I don’t mind it all that much except that he is pretty loud and I guess I’m worried about the neighbors caring.

its pretty normal especially during certain times of the year. get him some things he may "like" lol sometimes a slightly deflated basketball or things like that can work. or of you dont care let him have fun on whats there,
