On a hyperbolic Riemann surface, given two simple closed geodesics that intersect n times, we address the question of a sharp lower bound Ln on the length attained by the longest of the two geodesics. We show the existence of a surface Sn on which there exists two simple closed geodesics of length Ln intersecting n times and explicitly find Ln for n ≤ 3.
