I've only been to Abidjan, so I don't know about anywhere else. If you visit a strip club, you can pay the dancers for sex. I don't know if there are brothels or street girls - I didn't see any. The best thing to do though, in my opinion, is to visit a regular night club and hook up with someone there. The clubs are fun and the girls are friendly. My experience of Ivory Coast is that you need to have some basic French to cope - I didn't meet many people (even well-educated ones) who spoke English.

While I was there, I was staying in someone's house, so I wasn't in a hotel and I was not in a tourist area. There might a hotel bar scene or similar, but I don't know about that.

I'm also not sure what the security situation is at the moment. I know that as a result of the violence following the election this year, there are a lot more guns around than there used to be, burglaries are more common, etc. So, take advice from your work about safety - make use of their drivers, for example, rather than taking cabs.
