I'm reading Goddesses Never Age by Dr. Northrup. On page 166 and 167 of the hardback version from my library she clearly states that circumcision had its roots in preventing masturbation and goes on a couple of paragraphs later to say how traumatic these operations are and how the practice needs to end.

The rest of the book is a bit woo woo but I enjoyed it.

It doesn't actually stop masturbation. It just takes the pleasure out of it. This actually makes men want to masturbate even more to make up for how unsatisfying it is. But not too much more because masturbation can actually be painful at the same time. I still have pain where my frenulum used to be. It's like that area used to be the most sensitive part of my penis, but all that's left is a bunch of damaged nerve endings that actually hurt to touch. I guess I'll never know what it normally feels like.
