    :)> It does not mean a tropical island where many monkeys are living.

    A group of young men forming a "non dancing group" in a dancing event/ball - as far as I know.

    You have taught me a very interesting word meaning a special small part of the masculine body.:idea:

    Well yeah, but in this context it means "a loser".

    I think the boys of "majomsziget" mean rather cowards than losers.

    I agree with franknagy about the Hungarian, although it depends on the situation even in English.
    It can be a fairly "innocent" grouping.. and the English term doesn't refer specially (or just) to dancing events. (See this explanation.)
