Bodyguard Condoms - not for sale anymore?

Recommended Posts

What happened Bodyguard Condoms? I've gone to a lot of the Sukhumvit pharmacies and can't find them anymore. Those were those ones you can get in normal 56mm sizes. Are they not for sale anymore? I asked one pharmacy and he said they stopped making them since December 2016 but their website is still up: http://www.bodyguardcondoms.com/

Apparently the company has shut down. 

I would've thought they'd be killing it in profit servicing the non-Thai market as they had it all for themselves here. Are there any alternatives here for a 56mm size and is the prices similar?

Durex Comfort available in most 7/11 is a 56mm. That's about it as far as 56mm goes. Lifestyles (mostly available only in the pharmacies along Sukhumvit Road) does a 54mm. Okamoto also have a 54mm (Okamoto XL). They're all generally cheaper as Bodyguard was quite an expensive option at 90 baht for a box of 3

I was paying either 160baht or 180 baht for a 12 pack of Bodyguard. Will need to check out the prices of those other brands.

Just found those Durex 56mm at the cheapest pharmacy for 295baht for a 12 pack. Geez those are a ripoff! Bodyguard 12 packs were 160 baht from the exact same pharmacy. Anyone know why they closed down?

How much were you paying for a 12 pack of Okamoto XL & Lifestyles and where? I couldn't find them.

If you are going down Sukhumvit road in the direction of Siam, just after you pass Soi 4 on the left hand side there are two or three pharmacies. These pharmacies have both the Lifestyles and the Okamoto XL. The Lifestyles cost 45 baht for a pack of 3. The Okamoto I don't remember the price.

Maybe wasn't charging enough? You know, that whole old profit v. loss spiel?

The owner of Bodyguard now runs the New Yorker Cafe on Sukhumvit, very close to Exchange Tower.

So?.. if you can't get protection any more, you can always get coffee and a bagel instead?

You're talking about the big non-aircon pharmacy just after Sukhumvit 4 between the petrol station/McDonalds combo and before that pub with a bull out the front and a massage shop after it?

Yes, exactly. There are two pharmacies right next door to each other (one small and one big), both of which have Lifestyles and Okamoto XL.
