Ease of Acquisition:
Other condoms, such as the Durex Avanti Ultima condom and several Pasante brands are currently formulated as vegan condoms, but they are not registered as vegan products. They are, however, probably easier to find in your local drug store.
Use During Vaginal Intercourse:

Use During Oral Sex:
Although it would never have occurred to me that a condom wouldn't be vegan, it turns out that many condom companies process their latex condoms using casein - a protein derived from milk. There are several condom companies that do not use casein, however, and at least two of them (Glyde & RFSU) have registered with vegan groups in a pledge to remain animal-friendly. These condoms use no animal testing and no animal by-products.

I think it's wonderful that condom companies are marketing safe sex to the vegan community. Vegan latex, polyurethane, or polyisoprene condoms should have the same safe sex benefits as the non-vegan variety, and anything that encourages more people to practice safe sex is fine with me.
