In brief: Yes

Yes, you are far less likely to get an std by using a condon than without.
Condoms are not 100% effective and there still is a small risk you could be infected even with condom useage. But, if you wish to be as safe as possible insist that your partner uses a condom always for all sexual contact involving a penis.
