    Question there was no snap in his turtle

    Hi, The text I quoted is an excerpt of Friends, an American sitcom. What does 'there was no snap in his turtle' mean? Some Chinese say it means to have sex. I think so from the context. If it is true, why does it refer to sex? What are 'snap' and 'turtle'?

    Thank you!


    [Scene: Iridium, Monica is working as Frannie enters.]
    Frannie: Hey, Monica!
    Monica: Hey Frannie, welcome back! How was Florida?
    Frannie: You had sex, didn抰 you?
    Monica: How do you do that?
    Frannie: Oh, I hate you, I抦 pushing my Aunt Roz through Parrot Jungle and you抮e having sex! So? Who?
    Monica: You know Paul?
    Frannie: Paul the Wine Guy? Oh yeah, I know Paul.
    Monica: You mean you know Paul like I know Paul?
    Frannie: Are you kidding? I take credit for Paul. Y択now before me, there was no snap in his turtle for two years.

    Joey: (sitting on the arm of the couch)Of course it was a line!
    Monica: Why?! Why? Why, why would anybody do something like that?

    I made a search and found this:
