William Lloyd, contributing editor to student news website The Tab, wrote an article earlier this week in which he explained "Why I don't go down on girls".

This was, apparently, Lloyd's first experience of cunnilingus:

In the end it’s clear that I over prepared, that I aced the exam a little too well.

There’s no way of being ambiguous here: the first time I went down on a girl she ejaculated all over my face.

Unsurprisingly, the seemingly candid piece received quite a bit of attention online, with its author basking in all his new-found publicity.

Most of the comments on the story seemed to either criticise Lloyd for some of the claims he made, suggest that he'd never get a girlfriend again or point out that the article was almost definitely a deliberate attempt at creating outrage/attention/clicks (probably fair to say he achieved all three).

Lloyd was in prolific form on Twitter, re-posting comments made about his article, pointing out the famous people talking about it and even tweeting articles that other publications had written off the back of it.

But at some point on Wednesday afternoon, his Twitter feed suddenly went quiet.

Over on Huffington Post, Lloyd's ex-girlfriend Rhianna Kemi had written a blogpost: "An Open Letter to You, From All Dissatisfied Women".

In it, she explains that she was in fact the woman Lloyd had been talking about. But she seemed to disagree with some of his claims.

Alright, OK. One point to get out the way: the facts are simply not true. I can safely confirm that he went down on me several times during our relationship. In fact, he would ask to go down and I would often politely decline.

While pointing out that pleasuring a woman is no easy task, and one that needs to be practised, Kemi criticised Lloyd for using the platform he had to "rehearse the same tired story".

The real reason you don't want to go down anymore isn't because you made a girl come and it was unpleasant. It's because you are scared of the awkward silence of the girl who isn't enjoying it.
