1800 Lasagne and Figr lube bring you the ultimate, limited-edition loved-up lockdown pack.

If you'd like this lockdown to run a little more smoothly than the previous four, we've found your solution: a timely care package of lasagne and lube. It's the ultimate stay-at-home set-up and it's coming at you this weekend only, courtesy of two Melbourne-based businesses supremely well-versed in the art of a good night in.

Cult-favourite pasta delivery service 1800 Lasagne has teamed up with the minds behind Figr — a new Aussie-made water-based lubricant that's changing the game. Together, they've concocted one heck of a colluberation (sorry).

This Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25, the first 20 customers to pick up a food order from 1800 Lasagne's Thornbury HQ will also score themselves a free bottle of Figr's signature lube. Orders are made as usual over at 1800 Lasagne's website, then you'll just need to request your side serve of Figr from the friendly staff when you head in to pick up your tasty meal.

"It was a no-brainer," 1800 Lasagne's Joey Kellock told Concrete Playground when asked about the pleasurable partnership. "The perfect union — love, lasagne and lube!"

"We all need a little love from time to time, and with people during lockdown having a whole bunch of 'extra time on their hands', Figr and I thought we'd just help facilitate that love a little," he says.

Figr's co-founders Eloise McCullough and Eloise O'Sullivan share the sentiment of this match made in heaven. "1800 Lasagne are the pros when it comes to slinging endorphins around in the back of a beat-up old car. Figr was designed for when endorphins are getting flung around in the back of a beat-up old car," the pair says.

In the interests of a truly loved-up weekend, 1800 Lasagne will also have plenty of extra goodies available to order alongside your lasagne-and-lube combo, including garlic bread, creamy serves of tiramisu and bottles of Uggiano chianti.

Figr launched into the local sexual wellness scene in May this year, with its natural, vegan lubricant made with native Australian extracts. They're on a mission to normalise lube, as the founders explain: "We want people to be comfortable seeing lube at their local deli, beauty shop or on your friend's nightstand." If you miss out on this weekend's lasagne lube, you can always stock up over here.
