Stay-at-home fathers – and single guys hoping to add some mojo to their game – could learn a lot from the all-girl chat fest “The Talk”.

“If men listen, I bet they’ll will figure out how to get [more and better sex],” Marisa Jaret Winokur tells Fancast.

“The Talk” features six celebrity moms – Winokur, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini and Sharon Osbourne – gabbing about life through the prism of parenthood.

“Men are just as interested in their kids, but they don’t want to sit around in a mommy playgroup talking about vulvas,” Winokur jokes.

“We have pieces coming up on how to make yourself, as a man, look better for women. Stay at home dads are definitely going to learn a lot of stuff — like what you are missing as a man that you don’t have now.”

Much of the conversation — subjects range from bullying to when to talk to your kids about sex — is moderated by Chen, whose husband just happens to be top boss at CBS.

“I think men will see what makes women tick a little bit,” she says. “Now they may understand us a little bit more.”

Dreamed up “in the bathtub” by Executive Producer Gilbert (of “Roseanne” fame), the show is quickly turning into America’s largest parent support group.

“Many of the mom issues we touch on turn out to be dad issues too,” says showrunner Brad Bessey, himself the father of a 2 and a half year-old son.

“With our hosts as candid as they are with everything from their bodies to sex to the things their husbands do that make them angry, any man can learn so much more about the opposite sex than they might ever want to.”

Next week’s guests include celebrity dads L.L. Cool J (‘NCIS: Los Angeles’) and Jerry O’Connell (‘The Defenders’) as well as Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards.

“We are going to have some insight from her on how to co-parent when a marriage doesn’t go well,” Bessey says.
