I'm in an unsuccessful so far search for an English word, a noun, for a concept/situation/condition a group of men may find themselves in, having to live, say on a deserted island or in a far-off camp, for quite a long time in utter absence of women. I mean anything synonymous to the somewhat odd word "womanlessness". Maybe (and more preferably) there're some colloquial/slangy words or expressions to denote the insalubrious state/condition a group of men may have to live in for a long time without any interaction with a single woman?
The example sentence may run like this:
"In the... [here goes the noun being searched for] ... of the men-only camp, the guys were getting crazier and crazier from day to day."
Note: For those who happen to know Russian, the word is "безбабье"; although I doubt that it can be easily, if at all, found in Russian dictionaries even if it is understood by most Russian native speakers.
To keep the answers on the right track, two brief notes are added:
#1 I don't think a total lack of normal sexual activity for a long time is favorable to or promoting health for men, and that's what I meant by insalubrious, not the place they live in or things related to personal hygiene
#2 In the context I have in mind all men are straight, for the Russian word "безбабье" implies "no women among men, as possible and desirable sexual partners" concept.
