A sex position. A guy gets a girl naked, gets himself naked except for his pants, and lays on top of her. He then proceeds to awkwardly dry hump her while wriggling his arms and legs and making awkward noises, including the phrase, "Awkward turtle!!"
Man, Kevin totally Awkward Turtled Amanda last night. She was so mad.

Timmy never had sex before, and he really liked Stacy. They were making out and were about to have sex, but Timmy got really nervous. Instead, he just did The Awkward Turtle until she got dressed and went home.

Informal sign language gesture meant to convey awkwardness of the person making the sign, usually in a group conversation that takes place face-to-face.

Can be used to show awkwardness regarding many things, like abrupt changes in conversation topic, sudden hit on the opposite sex, anything in the TMI realm, etc.

The sign is made by placing the left hand out flat, in front of you, palm down, thumb sticking out to the right. The right hand is then put directly on top of the left hand, palm down, with the thumb pointing to the left. Both thumbs are then moved back and forth to mimic the fins of a swimming sea turtle.

Make the sign a few inches in front of your stomach, not to far away from your body.
Alan: "So, THEN what happened?"
Jill: "Our guide quickly fixed my harness, and we zipped to the next tree in the rain forest."
Rob:" That is totally cool! How far up were you?"
Jill: "At least 200 feet. Sometimes more. The whole thing was over a mile long. Took us hours."
Alan: "Tell me you weren't scared, and I'll call you a liar."
Jill: "Well I..."
Edward: "Your Facebook photo is pretty."
Rob: <awkward turtle>

In common useage in essex. Whenever an awkward or tense situation arises, the tenseness can be examplified by this gesture. You hold one hand out straight with fingers splayed. The other hand goes on top with the fingers curling in between the gaps in the fingers. Now all fingers curl to make a sphere (the shell of the turtle). Finally the thumbs on both hands are rotated.
Man 1: Man she's fit.

Man 2: Dude, that's my sister.
