Polytrothism, a form of polyamory, is the practice of egalitarian multiple intimate partnering. The term originated in 1988 at the second PEPCON conference (the predecessor to the Loving More conferences) to differentiate this form of partnering from more common forms where one connection, often the sole legally recognized one, has a primary status relative to the others.

Polytrothic relationships are characterized by equal participation by all partners in major life decisions such as those regarding livelihood, children and property.
