In one scene in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Frank-N-Furter says this to Rocky:
In just seven days, I can make you a man
Rocky is already a man with muscles.
What is the meaning of Frank-N-Furter's words to Rocky?

The "words" are actually part of a song called "I Can Make You a Man".
Essentially, Rocky was created by Frank-N-Furter after Frank discovered what he called "spark that is the breath of life".
When Rocky is 'born' he compliments Frank on his body and Frank says that he's the result of a lot of work.
ROCKY. [snip]..But I do think you made a pretty good job of the body work.
FRANK. You are the result of many hours of toil - and now my beautiful creature you're ready for the ultimate test.
The song starts afterwards which basically says that the old way of getting your body to look that way was lot of exercise & proper diet...but now there is a new way...he can literally make a man in 7 days.
There is also an implied sexual overtone with the words "make you a man" as this is also a reference to rites of passage usually involving losing ones virginity.
The song lyric is a play on the old ads claiming that a short course at the gym could give you a muscular body by using the euphemism "make you a man", which means to take a "boy's" virginity.
Of course, he's also speaking to his audience, since he's just demonstrated that he can "make a man", and could presumably do so again, if anyone else wanted one.
