In slang, one can use the generic "man", to describe his conversant. For instance:

Man, it's sure hot here this season

How can I express that for a woman I'm talking with?

It does not "describe the conversant". It's just an interjection. This is like asking for a unisex equivalent for "wow". en.wiktionary.org/wiki/man#Interjection –  RegDwigнt May 22 '12 at 9:27
