Lamenting circumcision, and wishing for ways to restore the sensitivity in the glans of my penis, I had heard that if you 'roll up' your penis inside its extra skin it would act in the same way as a foreskin by protecting it from the... elements.

However, I am concerned that having my penis constantly compressed as such would cause some sort of harm to it, which I'd gladly avoid.

Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds stupid to me. Unless you want to be a chick it's weird, and if you do it's really weird. That's what they do in a sex change coupled with some hormones. But seriously unless you're walking around in sandpaper underwear, I don't think it would do a whole lot. I recommend wearing Under Armour, it will provide the same "protection" without the stigma of being that weirdo with the rolled up dick. Honestly, I love some of the questions that you people come up with.
