There’s a new sexual orientation out there, and it’s called “digisexuality”. This Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio interview, New York Times article, and Sexual and Relationship Therapy journal article by Neil MacArthur can give you a bit more depth into the subject.
Is there a “golden” tempo that is universally appealing, like the Golden Ratio is universally appealing visually? Not to my knowledge… nor search engine Google’s knowledge, for that matter. However, as I was setting a tempo for a piano étude I had composed a few decades ago, it turned out to be about 100 bpm. That was roughly 1 and 2/3 beats per second, or 1.666 approximated, which wasn’t far from 1.618 approximated that I knew to be the rounded value of the Golden Ratio.

That’s the term I’ve coined for it.
I suspect it’d happen to yours as well.
