In response to the comments on Do either men or women have higher pain tolerance than the other?, should questions about the differences between men and women be tagged sex? If not, is there a useful alternative? gender seems more apt for questions relating to gender; the opposing opinion was that sex is for the act of sex and not the biological distinction.
In any case, updating the tag wiki with the appropriate expectation would be handy for newcomers such as myself.

Personally I think sex should not be used at all in favour of
- gender for gender differences and gender issues (male/female/lgbt...)
- sexuality for the psychological and social aspects of sex and sexual activities in general
- reproduction for the reproductive process, which may or may not include sex or even gender
