PositiveBroadlyMany Love offers up a picture of what polyamory has looked like, over the years, for one person—and her many partners. The memoir chronicles Johnson’s journey, from learning about polyamory to finding many loves. We’re with her as she’s swept away by giddy high school romances, attempting to open up adult relationships, finding best friendship, finding primary partnership, finding community, finding boyfriends, then falling in love with a boyfriend while staying in a primary relationship. And at each milestone, she narrates her process of making sure she knows herself well enough to communicate her needs and emotions ... Johnson’s writing is, at times, as saccharine as her similes. To balance that sentimentality, I found myself wishing the chapter on sex was slightly juicier. But that’s not what Many Love is about, really. If you’re looking for racy descriptions of group sex or tips for switching up your bedroom life, you will not find them in these pages ... What you will find is a notion of polyamory that begins without any description of sex at all ... In fact, Johnson’s articulation of commitment was so moving, I found myself searching the web after I hung up the phone. \'Plane tickets from New York to New Orleans\' I typed in—wanting to continue reading by bearing witness to Johnson’s next romantic chapter.
