Condoms are highly effective against most sexually transmitted diseases (STD's).
One of the most popular brands is Durex, which can be found for sale at the counter of most 7-11 stores and many other convenient places. The white ones have the spermicidal lubricant N-11 as displayed on the front of the box, which is also effective in disabling some STD's to some extent.
A relatively new condom to hit the market, as of early 2000, is called BodyGuard. It is a larger condom oriented towards the ex-pat and tourist market. It's most commonly found in vending machines in go-go bars and pickup joints in the Sukhumvit area.
Most shorttime hotels in the tourist and ex-pat areas will also sell you a condom for a very slightly higher price than you can get them from the store.
It has been reported that most prostitutes in the Sukhumvit area do not have a condom with them. Many do, but most don't. Some bars will give you a condom if you ask. It has been reported from clients of sex-massage places that the latter usually supply a condom.
In any case, you should bring a pack of your favorite brand and model of condoms with you. You should also make sure that you never run low at home.
There have been reports of condoms breaking, including Durex condoms (particularly the very thin or polyurethane ones).
If you use a lubricant, then it should be water based, not petroleum or oil based, as the latter can chemically react with the condom to dissolve and weaken it, and cause it to break. You can buy good water-based lubricant at a place called Utopia on the Green Route east of Sukhumvit 23. It's across the street from Casa Maria's, less than a hundred meters from the Pegasus and Narcissus establishments, and just a couple hundred meters off from soi 23.
