This site discusses phimosis in its specific forms of phimotic ring, frenulum breve, adhesions or skinbridges. During erection these conditions inhibit the relationship between foreskin and glans. This functionally
restricts the erection, and thus has an effect on the sexuality. With
our culture's attitudes on health care, it would be appropriate to monitor
boys before puberty and encourage early prevention.
2012 : note from author: My previous idea of monitoring boys before puberty is impractical, unecessary and now only of historical interest. please see Postscript.
ESTIMATIONS on PHIMOSIS STATISTICS without REFERENCES
In the Encyclopedia Judaica (3) under circumcision it says that "10% of boys eventually need
it, because of non-retractability of the foreskin" .

Boon speculates without giving any references "In Bali, up to 50% of
men over the age of 18 has some degree of Phimosis." Of interest: "In
a Hindu population in a predominantly Muslim country not only is circumcision
not practiced, but phimosis is often left untreated because of a prohibition
to intervene with the male foreskin"... the study unfortunately doesn`t
tell us any more on this theme.
