Fashion magazine Dazzle (not to be confused with Razzle) has interviewed British women who wear burkas to try to find out the reasons why they cover themselves in such an unusual item of clothing.
The most popular response, with a whopping 34%, was because of religious reasons and a fear that God would punish them.
The second most popular answer (23%) was a fear that their husband or family would punish them.
16% of burka wearers said they wear it "to piss off the EDL."
11% said they haven't put any thought whatsoever into the matter and just follow whatever their friends or family do.
Surprisingly, a number of women (10%) said that they enjoy the attention it gives them as they walk down the street.
As one woman said, "it makes me feel like all eyes are on me, and that makes me horny."
1% said they wear it because it looks good, but that person turned out to be a transvestite.
