I tried the Vacurect pump with the discs also, and found them to be painful and not very useful. The disc's are designed to keep the scrotum and assorted other body parts out of the pump. Like you said, it does, but at the price of being difficult to put on and even more so to remove. One trick they mentioned that I missed for a while was to gently squeeze the erection to push the blood back out, then to remove the ring. I found that with enough grip, I could semi-stretch the disc for removal after squeezing the blood out somewhat.
I bought a set of soft silicone rings, and use them with the Vacurect pump. With a little practice, I can put a silicone ring on the end of the pump and place it on the penis when needed, with no pain, pinching, or problem. Removal can be immediate, by grasping the wings and pulling out and off. Here's the link.

My impression was that you use injections for intercourse and the pump only for therapy.
Have you gone back to using the pump for intercourse also?
I admire your discipline and time management.
I use the pump for therapy, without rings, MOST days but have never managed to use it twice a day.
As I told my wife, I get no particular joy from using it, but feel that I NEED to do it.
Never thought I would say this, but I am looking forward to injections. I hope I do not have false hopes there.
