Out of curiosity what do you think it’s really thinking? Is that unmitigated joy, or stark terror?

Neither.
But they usually do like a rubbing. I don't have turtles any more, but my tortoises like a back rub. They will even do it, the hoochie koochie themselves on low hanging branches. If they didn't like it they could just walk away.
I'm sure this probably felt good.

I'd think if it was hurting him, he would be trying to grab that toothbrush. Looks like he is enjoying it but who really knows.

Very funny! Speedy normally gets his claws on the toothbrush and pushes it away! Not sure he enjoys it but I make it a short brush over as part of the soak to get rid of that subbon grime.
