The author discusses the critique of compulsory heterosexuality and heteronormativity in queer, feminist, and critical race theory and argues that there is a missing critique of compulsory monogamy and mononormativity. The author then summarizes empirical research on polyamory and suggests it lacks a queer, feminist, and critical race theoretical framework. Given the centrality of monogamy in heteronormativity and the emergence of polyamory as a subculture and relationship form, the author argues that a critical theory of polyqueer sexualities is both timely and needed. A description of methods and chapter summaries are provided.
