Russian terms of semi-enderment and Feminists

Hi,

so I’ve got a romance on my hands. And the pairing leaves me a lot of questions. Both middle-aged, both a bit world weary/jaded and sarcastic. Anyways, the guy is Russian, (the exact area hasn't been defined/doesn't matter, probably Moscow) and the woman is a new Yorker of Italian heritage, who is getting her doctorate in Women's Studies. What I need is 

1.) Any sorts of "exclamations" the Russian man would say during the hot and heavy. Something along the lines of "God" (except he's an atheistic) or "Please"

2.) I'd like for him to semi-confess his feelings to her, while she's asleep, and for it to be in Russian. But they are not "lovey-dovey" type people so anything like "I love you" or "you have my heart" doesn't ring right. All my googling of "Russian terms of endearment" "love in Russian" "Russian slang" and "Russian dating" have turned up very mushy things or nothing. So I’d like to find something like, "I need you" or "I don't want you to leave" or something like that, followed by "But this won't work." either a link to a translator or an actual translation would be great.

3.) The woman is a very well educated feminist, but not a very, very dramatic bra-burning type one. I'd like to hear from actual feminists about a) clichés about feminists that bother you, or b) things that you feel set you apart from the stereotypical housewife, you know discussions/arguments you've had with friends who don't share your views. I’ve tried searching for a blog like that, but everything I find is very, very political, and I’m looking for more, “this is how I see the world.
