It is commonly known among circumcision opponents that the foreskin contains much of the penis's sexually sensitive tissue. What is less well known is that the sexually sensitive tissue is mainly concentrated in a particular organ within the foreskin, called the ridged band. The outer surface of the foreskin consists of regular skin tissue, and the inner surface consists of mucous tissue. The ridged band is located at the very distal end of the foreskin on the inner side, constituting the most distal part of the mucous tissue. The ridged band contains a high concentration of meissner's corpuscles. Meissner's corpuscles are a type of nerve receptor. The meissner's corpuscles of the ridged band are the main center of male sexual sensitivity.
