“Polyamorous communities emphasize love and honesty in their multi-partner relationships.”

Means "Many Loves". It means having multiple commited relationships with people you are mutally in love with, and everyone wants it to be that way.

This is not to be confused with swinging or multiple relationships, where you are sleeping with the other people or they are friends with bennies, whom you love. That is called non-monogamy, and to say it is polyamory is a lie.
"I told Brad I'm in love with him, and my husband Rick is very happy for us."
"That's cheating!"
"No, we're polyamorous. You can only cheat on rules that exist. We don't have an agreement to be exclusive. But an example of me cheating would be to not tell Rick that I'm in love, because the rule of honesty is right up there with the rule that the primary relationship comes first"
"I could never do that. I'm too jealous"
"Then don't."
"Are you sleeping with both these guys?"
"Now that I'm in love with both of them, yes. But you don't have to be having sex to be polyamorous, because what it means is that you are mutually in love with more than one person at a time. Most people do sleep with those they love, but sex is not what makes you poly"

A supposed natural occurrence where someone can experience romantic love for more than one person. A polyamorous person will suggest that a polyamorous relationship is natural and they will insist on it again and again and again. If you are in love with someone who is polyamorous, it is very likely they will be unable to control the "natural" urges. They will either cheat on you or mope when you say that you want to be in a good, monogamous relationship. If you find out someone is polyamorous, I would suggest not dating them or even being friends with them.

In a word, Highschool.
A polyamorous's lifestyle and a highschooler's lifestyle hold uncanny parallels. In both lifestyles individuals have multiple relationships going on at one time, both sexaul and romantic. And everyone involved is relatively ok with.

Johnny- "How do you have so many girlfriends??!?! Don't they care that you're cheating?"

Johnny- "Wow, when I grow up, I want to be a polyamorous"
