"By undermining "sober-satisfying everyday life," romance wrought as much havoc as prudery, its twin." (Lasch)

Could you explain what does "sober-satisfying" mean, please?

    The normal, conventional and routine. The excitement and thrill of romance upsets this.

    I believe that what is meant by the phrase "sober-satisfying" is the idea that normal, conservative life, unexciting as it may be, can still be satisfying, conducive to contentment or fulfillment.
