Polyamory stands for a particular relationship philosophy, according to which it is  valid  and  desirable  to  love  more  than  one  person.  Love,  intimacy,  commitment, honesty,  equality,  reciprocity,  integrity  and  communication  are  the  central  values attached  to  this  ‘love  style’,  ‘relationship  orientation’  or  ‘ethical  approach’  to consensual non-monogamy. The identifi cation of love as the foundation of meaningful erotic  and  intimate  connection  is  the  common  feature  of  most  interpretations  of polyamory.  The  author  analyses  popular  publications  on  polyamory  and  personal narratives  generated  in  qualitative  in-depth  interviews  with  primarily  bisexualidentifi ed polyamorous men and women in the UK with the aim of discerning salient features in the discourse of poly love. The article locates polyamory in a conjuncture of specifi c developments regarding (romantic) love practices in the 20th and 21st centuries.
