EV is defined by the combination of aperture and shutter speed, for any given ISO. The only camera that I've seen an EV display on is an old Olympus-35 SP. Many light metres do show EV, as well as aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
Speaking of intuitive exposures, have you heard of the "rule of 16"? On a sunny day, set the shutter speed to 1/ISO value and aperture to 16. If you want wider apertures, just increase the shutter speed (by double) for every extra stop opened up.
