In brief: Anhedonia

Anhedonia is loss of pleasure in all activities.
What used to bring enjoyment, no longer does. This can be a symptom of major depression, and can be excruciating. Losing interest or pleasure in sex alone may not mean depression, but could be a specific sexual dysfunction or other problem. Best to see your physician for a complete history and physical, also some lab work -- and go from there.
