This stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. It is used by sending an electrical current through particular parts of the body to block pain in chronic pain situations. Some people use this as a fetish object, where they use the TENS machine to shock various parts of themselves for pleasure (see electrophilia)
Football player: My back hurts.
Doctor: I'm going to put you on this TENS machine for a while, so that it will block the pain.

Sally: I like shocking myself.
Guy: WTF? Well, how do you do it?
Sally: I hook myself up to this TENS machine. It feels stronger than a violet wand, and I like it!

A human being shaped so perfectly that their hotness is almost painful to look at:

Boys; know you've met a ten when she tells you a joke and you accidentally spit coke in her face.

Girls; know you've met a ten when the fact that he's even speaking to you makes you wet.

Be careful! Tens know it. They have mirrors too. Their prettyness is so intense that you will forgive anything just to be around them. They are not always nice people.
