'80s/'90s cable thriller about phone sex

This is driving me nuts! I've been googling for an hour and nothing! I watched this erotic thriller on late night cable (could've been HBO, Cinemax, or Showtime) cca 1996 (no idea how old it was at the time) about a painter who has regular phone sex with a lady he imagines as tall and blonde (of course there are plenty of fantasy sex scenes). Eventually he decides to paint a picture of her lying on a bed, cut in half (yeah, I know), but later decides it creeps him out, so he paints a sheet draped over the middle part. Then they plan to meet at a motel. He goes there, finds her lying on the bed, exactly as he'd imagined, with the sheet draped over her waist. When he moves it, she really is cut in half! So he's afraid he'll be blamed but somehow he finds the real lady he was talking to, a short, less attractive lady with short red hair. He forces her to confess, she apologizes and say some people (mob?) pay her to do it, but they actually end up falling in love and having sex. At the end of the movie, they're on a plane together (escaping I guess) and he starts fingering her under the blanket (I know, I know...'90s b-movie, remember), then they fall asleep like that. When he wakes up, she's been murdered, has blood running out of her ear. When he talks to the cops later, they tell him these are people who are not to be messed with and he should just forget the whole thing and move on (I know, I know, I know).

PLEASE, can someone tell me what this movie's called??? Thanks!!!!!
