No doubt Frank would, and probably has already taken this information and used it in detail to illustrate the benefits of the foreskin and the extent of the loss a boy suffers when his penis is circumcised. (Frank, here see a wink smiley!)
But I prefer to quote a sentence from the last paragraph of the following link, let it speak for itself, and ask you to skim through the information and pictures it offers.
"It is generally thought that the prepuce protects the glans. However, it is equally likely that the glans shapes and protects the prepuce. In return, the glans and penile shaft gain excellent if surrogate sensitivity from the prepuce. Possibly, the `ridged band' helps mediate the afferent limb of the ejaculatory reflex."
Note my underlining. This is something I had never considered and it comes as a revelation to me, but makes perfect sense.
