The pair say they have been inseparable since Rykia’s father passed away in a car accident when she was seven and Karla stepped up as a single parent.
While Rykia admitted former boyfriends had not been thrilled at the idea that Karla was watching their most intimate moments, the pair said they still didn’t understand why people branded their relationship ‘bizarre’.
‘I showed her [Rykia] my first sex tape about two years ago,’ Karla revealed in the show, with her daughter saying she then showed her mom her own video a year later.
Rykia explained: ‘I was like, “Hey, I want to spice things up, I bought this outfit, what kind of positions do you think I should do or what do you think we should do?”‘.
‘She was just like, “oh girl, prop your leg up at this angle, maybe your back should have been a little bit more arched in this position”‘, she added.

Rykia, on her close relationship with her mother
On top of perusing each other’s sex exploits, Karla and Rykia also regularly give each other waxes, including their bikini lines.
The mother-duo don’t understand why their special bond causes such strong reactions and negative comments from friends and family.
‘I don’t see why they feel that our relationship is bizarre or weird. It shocks people if we share the things that we do,’ Karla said.
‘I think when people don’t know everything about a relationship, they will judge the little bit that they see,’ she added.

‘Our relationship is a great balance of mum and best friend, so no, don’t question me about my relationship with my daughter – we got this over here!’
‘I couldn’t imagine my life without my mum being in it, it would ruin me,’ Rykia said.
Discussing the loss of her husband, Karla said: ‘I just didn’t know what to do, a part of me was gone. It made us grow closer because she needed her dad, and I was the only one there. I had to fill in the gap.’
