Well, ni, I don't think this necessarily means there's anything wrong with you, if you are happy the way you are. Sex isn't compulsory. Some people just don't have a very strong sex drive / libido, and may choose to live a celibate life, quite happilly. While sex can be a source of great plasure, it can also be a source of considerable problems and misery under various circumstances.
Now, there are a number of other reasons why one might not develop an active libido, or lose what one has. Depression is excellent at doing this ; it might be a response to experiences of molestation / abuse as a child. Or there may be physical reasons, with a lower than usual level of the necessary hormoes. So if there is any reason to suspect these further psychological or physical reasons, it could be worthwhile to consult a good general physician for a thorough checkup, so as to be re-assured. If celibate is your nature, that's fine.
