That is totally junk. He knew he slept with Lois, but did not bother to see what the consequences would be. He just is too much up a wimp to face up to it, so instead he runs off to Krypton to avoid facing his responsibilies, including the one of telling Lois who he really is before he sleeps with her.
"Lois and Clark" Clark was a lunkhead because he proposed before telling Lois, but at least he tells her before he ever sleeps with her.
