  Normal Development of the Prepuce
Moreover, the inner mucosal surface of the prepuce is fused with the underlying mucosal surface of the glans penis.
The membrane that bonds the inner surface of the prepuce with the glans penis spontaneously disintegrates and releases the prepuce to separate from the glans.
Analysis of shape and retractability of the prepuce in 603 Japanese boys.

The prepuce is not a "flap of tissue" but rather a double folded tube of skin and muscosal tissue mucous membrane (like the inside of the mouth) which attaches at the crested end of the glans at the suculas[?], and to the body above the pubic bone[?] and scrotum.
Unlike the skin on the rest of the body which is attached to the underlying tissue, the prepuce and shaft skin are free to glide along the shaft of the penis, which reduces friction, abrasion and loss of lubricating fluid during intercourse.
The smooth muscle, called Dartos muscle[?], of the ridged band and frenulum return the prepuce over the glans when the penis is flaccid (not erect), both to protect the highly sensitive nerves of the ridged band and to a lesser extent the glans.

Autonomic innervation of the prepuce arises from the pelvic plexus.
The parasympathetic visceral efferent and afferent fibres arise from the sacral centre (S2-S4), and sympathetic preganglionic afferent and visceral afferent fibres from the thoracolumbar centre (T11-L2).
The squamous epithelial lining of the inner prepuce is contiguous with the glans at this stage, so that preputial adhesions are a normal part of development, not a pathologic state.2,3 Desquamated skin cells become entrapped on the glans beneath the adhered prepuce, leading to formation of preputial cysts...

 The Prepuce: Anatomy, Physiology, Innervation, Immunology, and Sexual Function
The male prepuce is formed by a midline collision of ectoderm, neuroectoderm and mesenchyme, resulting in a pentalaminar structure composed of a squamous mucosal epithelium lamina propria (corion) dartos muscle, dermis and outer glabrous skin [10].
Of historical interest, true aposthia (absence of a prepuce) with normal development of the urethra and glans must be very rare: however, it is referenced in Jewish law of 1567 CE, relative to a child born circumcised [26].

If one takes care to press the prepuce after one has urinated one can avoid this disadvantage, however it is felt, that such people are not in the position to have children, because the the seminal fluid would suffer the same fate as the urine.
The skin of the prepuce is double: at the place where the inner skin joins with the other parts, there are a number of oval or almost round glands, placed irregularly around the union of the glans with the corpus cavernosum, & on the glans itself.
This loose fold of penile skin which one names prepuce & which usually embraces the base of the glans, is sometimes attached to it owing to malformation; & this cohesion demands all the dexterity of a skilful operator in order to avoid wounding the prepuce & the glans.

Meissner's corpuscles of the prepuce may be compared with similar nerve-endings in the finger-tips and lips, which respond in a fraction of a second to contact with light objects that bring about deformation of their capsules 14.
The present findings suggest that a part of the prepuce differs in several ways from the rest of the prepuce; no attempt was made to quantify the specialized nerve endings of the `ridged band' because they should be seen in the context of their function and location in the crests of ridges.
The innervation of the outer skin of the prepuce is impressive 16 ; its sensitivity to light touch and pain are similar to that of the skin of the penis as a whole.

Prepuce spontaneously separates from the glans as age increases and true phimosis is rare in children.
From 9545 observations of the state of the prepuce in 1968 schoolboys aged 6-17 years examined annually for up to 8 years, Øster[4] concluded that physiological phimosis is a rare condition in schoolboys, and it has a tendency to regress spontaneously.
By their studies, Gairdner[3] and Øster[4] concluded that prepuce is adherent to glans during the natural course of development of prepuce and separates gradually with age.

 Boston IMC: newswire/5750
The gross and histological features of the prepuces of 22 adults obtained at autopsy were assessed, primarily focusing on the inner or mucosal surface of the prepuce.
The outer surface of the prepuce was measured from its tip to the sulcus of the glans; the skin of the penile shaft extended from the sulcus to the abdominal wall.
The `ridged band' may be key to the persistent mislabelling of the inner lining of the prepuce as `skin'; it is clearly visible on inspection of the retracted prepuce, it is continuous with the wrinkled true skin of the tip of the prepuce, and it looks like skin.
