Are all condoms created equal or are more expensive ones better?

In brief: NO!

Great question! in this case, more expensive is not necessarily better. Latex is cheap and is the best protection against std's, including hiv.
However, natural lambskin condoms "feel like you're wearing nothing at all" and are safe for latex-allergic people. Although they're as effective at preventing pregnancy, they do not protect against HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
