Abstract


While still highly stigmatized, polyamory has seen an impressively fast rise towards acceptability when compared to other non-monogamies and sexual minorities. Drawing on both early and recent media examples, the author will survey tactics used by polyamorous individuals and media pieces: conceptual reframing, maintaining distinction from other non-monogamies, desexualization, essentialism, and showcasing normativity, among other personal and cultural strategies.
