Bird wanting to breed

Hello, I'm really embarrassed about what I'm about to ask. My bird "Zuse" is a Dusky Conure. I'm not sure how old he is because I rescued him from becoming snake food. I didn't ask to many questions; I just took him and ran. I have only had him about a month now, so we are still getting to know each other.
What I'm finding out about him is that this bird is the most stimulated animal I have ever come across. I say step up and he must hear "hump my hand" please. I feel for him but don't feel it is right to let him get down or should I say get it up on my hand.
Is there some thing I can buy for him short of a girl friend? My husband won't go for another bird. He barely tolerates this one. I think that is why Zuse bites me out of the blue and for no reason some times. Because he is wanting to breed and has no way of getting any release. Other wise he is a great bird and I hope to spend many fun and good years with him.
Thanks for any advice anyone might have.
