French term or phrase: leur corps défendant

mir ist der folgende Satz nicht ganz klar, auch wegen oben genanntem Begriff. Was hat das Ganze mit dem Körper zu tun, und warum sträubt sich der Körper? Danke!

De nombreux artistes plasticiens ont exploré le domaine de la création sonore souvent vierges de tout bagage musical; mais parfois (...) avec une connaissance musicale et même une pratique régulière de la musique, ont dû à *leur corps défendant* se battre afin de retrouver une merveilleuse virginité.
