Question Why does he put his paw on me?

1yr old intact male. Anytime I sit down, he insists on putting his paw on me, sometimes both. He would crawl into my lap if I let him. I push his paw off and tell him no. Of course he looks at me like I have just crushed his feelings :(
He is relentless with the paw. The more I tell him no, the more he wants to put both on me, climb up on me. It is a vicious cycle, I get mad and he gets more upset! Is he being submissive or aggressive? It isn't to play (we do plenty of that) because when he finally stops, he goes to his bed and goes to sleep. Any thoughts? Thank you!
