We show that for any two convex curves C_1 and C_2 in R^d parametrized by [0,1] with opposite orientations, there exists a hyperplane H with the following property: For any t\in [0,1] the points C_1(t) and C_2(t) are never in the same open halfspace bounded by H. We discuss the reasons for this result and its applications in convex geometry.
