“The SenSlip is worn on the penis throughout the day, protecting the glans and remaining exposed foreskin from chafing and the elements. Constructed and anatomically formed from the thinnest and finest pre -vulcanised latex and microscopic viscose rayon fibers, the SenSlip has an inner and outer rolling layer to allow natural retraction to expose the glans for urination or cleaning. Like a natural foreskin the SenSlip is specially designed to stay in place all day (it weighs as much as a tissue), and of course it is seamless.”
“When worn, the SenSlip will provide immediate protection. Irritation or friction to the penis will cease, and the surface of the glans and any remaining foreskin on the penile shaft will slowly become dekeratinized. Over the course of a few weeks the glans will become more sensitive to touch and feel. “
A remedy for masturbation which is almost always successful in small boys is circumcision. The operation should be performed by a surgeon without administering an anesthetic, as the brief pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishment. In females, the author has found the application of pure carbolic acid to the clitoris an excellent means of allaying the abnormal excitement.

The practice of infant circumcision became routine shortly after the publication of the article quoted above. Medical justifications for it (circumcision, not the article ) didn’t appear until significantly later. You can read more here:
Well, that’s good… what the heck is dekeratinization?
Keratin is the protein that makes up your skin, hair, fingernails, and toenails. One of the complaints about circumcision is that it exposes the glans, which is covered in fairly sensitive and thin skin, to abrasion by “the environment” (read: undies). The abrasion reportedly leads to “keratinization” of the glans - a buildup of keratin, leading to tougher, thicker, less sensitive skin. So supposedly foreskin restoration will lead to dekeratinization, restoring sensitivity. But, like I said, no studies have been able to demonstrate that this actually happens.
