One thing I noticed about all of this (Caldevwin's encounter especially) is two things:

The effect is an area effect. Any male in close proximity to her seems to be affected equally, and she does not exhibit any ability to exclude certain individuals from the effect, or target specific individuals she wants to affect.

She seems unable/unwilling to turn off/control the intensity of the effect entirely, given how she handled the Caldevwin situation (be using the Power to cause a distraction, then excusing herself from his presence, rather than turning off or lessening the intensity of this effect, especially with regard to Caldevwin specifically).

Of course, Terez could have been displaying her world-class sarcasm here. Nevertheless, my post is also in response to CC's OP.
This sounds to me like a ter'angreal.
