Well, ipso facto, masturbation involves self love, if you're doing it right. It could also involve love for your partner(s), if you think of them while jilling off.
Personally, I can see a link between porn positivity and being poly (or any other kind of non-mono lovestyle). If you're confident enough to not feel threatened by your partner loving and having sex with another live human being, looking at porn (alone or together) could be seen as an enhancement of one's fully embraced, positive sex life and fantasy life.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
