Care", stated in its Sixth Edition (1985):

"Now that circumcision is not recommended to stop
masturbation and now that the theory about cervical cancer has been
disproved, there is no excuse for the operation- except as a religious
rite.  And retraction is painful and unnecessary.  So, I strongly
recommend leaving the foreskin alone."

"My own prefernce, if I had the good fortune to have another son, would be
to leave his little penis alone."
