Explanation:
Someone queries the meaning of the term here forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=250550
Most people agree that it "refers to the part of the anatomy that the person most responds to sexually".

I did see the movie loooong ago! I don't know but I think these fraternities can have that kind of crass humor (never been in one myself).
Anyway, my confidence level is 3, and I just quoted a forum which discussed the term as it appears in that movie.

You could maybe post the term under En>En - it would be interesting to see the discussion it would generate there.

Asker: C'mon Nesrin. You know that this wouldn't be the case in the year book of such a school. You have seen the movie, haven't you?

Asker: I was thinking it could be a frat thing

thigh man
رجل الذي تعجبه كثيرا الحفالت


Explanation:
(a man who likes parties a lot)

I got this from a commentary on the film in Spanish:

Posteriormente al descubrir el anuario de su promoción los alumnos nos enteran que ha sido capitán del equipo de fútbol, director del anuario, que su intención era estudiar en Cambridge, que había sido votado por sus compañeros como "el hombre con más condiciones para hacer cualquier cosa", que *** era muy amigo de las fiestas*** [he was a man who likes parties a lot] y probablemente el principal animador de una sociedad escolar secreta denominada "Sociedad de los Poetas Muertos".

(My translation): Later when the pupils discover his yearbook they find out that he was captain of the football team, that he was intending to study at Cambridge University, that he had been voted by his fellow pupils as "the man most likely to do anything", that he liked parties a lot, and that he was probably the chief promoter of a secret school society named the "Dead Poets Society".

http://www.shareeducation.com.ar/library/DEAD_POETS_society....

This ties in with what comes immediately afterwards in the script:

CHARLIE
Thigh man? Mr. "K" was a hell raiser.
http://sfy.ru/sfy.html?script=dead_poets

A "hell raiser" is someone who plays really loud music etc.
