Goffman’s works on strategies about concealing stigmatised identities that relate to double, double biographies, line and face and appearance management are brought to life through the experiences of Contributors. Some of these sex workers create psychological and geographical distance between work sites and personal lives, transition roles, personas and attire in the liminal spaces and manage audiences and information across employment settings in sex work and square work. The Dual-life Relational Paradigm Venn diagram illustrates seven relational fields in which information and relationships from sex work, square work and personal lives may collide. Contributors safeguard against accidental revelation and the intermingling of people who ‘know’ them differently or being caught in the wrong place with the wrong face. Contributors discuss their experiences of managing information communication technologies (ICTs), devices, and the risks and experiences of being ‘outed’ through technology and ends with their commentary on digital surveillance when living a dual life.

Keywords:   Stigma-avoidance, role transition, audience segregation, information management, digital surveillance, commuting, Goffman, Information communications technologies (ICT’s), device management, concealing stigma
